I recently read about this

I recently read about this type of burial in a brief note from the 1742 students at Moravian College. I have never heard of such a burial and after reading this article and going onto the website of Green Meadow in Fountain Hill it is very interesting.

I've always wanted to see

I've always wanted to see cemeteries used for something more than just gravesites. Many cemeteries in Michigan are stocked with beautiful old growth trees. It feels like a park filled with monuments to the dead. Call me uncouth, but, I'd love to see a Tim Burton-esque playground in our local cemeteries. I was raised watching the Adams Family :)
