Very interesting post! I discovered in one of my probate records yesterday that my gg grandfather had a "casket extra size" purchased and a "cypress box". So was he double "boxed" when buried? Hmmmmmm.

We humans do some strange things. Michigan apparently just banned leaving memorials roadside, so no more of that. The cemetery were my husband's family is buried had a big 'issue' with 2 families leaving the equivalent of an entire living room / bookshelf w/knickknacks etc graveside. I have gotten emails of some very interesting tombstones. Hmmmm.

Thanks for the interesting post, Thomas. I'm all for recycling but I'll give the "sky dancing" a miss :-)
