While I was searching through my database deciding whose gravesite to feature on today’s Tombstone Tuesday, I thought that I would feature my Mother, since her birthday would have been November 5.
Let me begin by saying that my family doesn’t “do funerals”. Both sets of my grandparents and my mother have passed away and I have never been to a family funeral. I was 30 before I ever visited the grave of a relative. I know for sure that my paternal grandparents and my mother were cremated and their ashes scattered in the ocean. I need to find out if my maternal grandparents were buried or cremated.
