I agree with that. For me wanting to have some
connection to where ancestors were buried makes a
difference, don't know if I could get by with doing
that in a cemetery. As a sometime genealogy hobbyist,
I am aware that elaborate burial customs have been
beneficial to genealogists and historians, but that is
just a downside to a pragmatic approach.
