May they rest in peace—or he and she for that matter. Burial is far more expensive than cremation, but where would you like your remains to spend eternity? In a grave or urn? You probably didn’t think you would have to deal with interior decoration in the afterlife. However, that’s what it’s come to. Burial is obviously more expensive cause you have to buy the real estate. And you undoubtedly remember the old motto about property, location, location, location. There are waiting lists for  all the good cemeteries and you have to get by the board. Yet while you may have discountenanced things like funerals, memorials, mausoleums and gravestones, as you get closer to the end you may be finding you’re changing your mind. Why assume that friends and family won’t be willing to cancel their yoga classes therapy appointments and afternoon trysts to take the two hour trip up to see your newly engraved stone?
