Some people believe cemetery space is limited, and cremations will save valuable land. NOT SO! There is enough cemetery land presently dedicated to bury every person who dies in the next fifty years in a single grave, without adding one square foot of additional land. A ride in an airplane is convincing.
Cemeteries provide ecological purpose. Open space for grass to grow, birds to nest, and trees and flowers to flourish. Cemeteries are important to our ecology! The modern memorial park concept offers aesthetic benefits to any community. Most cemeteries offer affordable options for placement of cremated remains.
The choice of cremation does not preclude any other preference of memorial opportunities that are affordable and can be guaranteed in writing.
