How will you be remembered?

On Saturday afternoon I walked around Morris Hill Cemetery. Some of the military graves in the Silent Camp already had flags and flowers for Memorial Day.

What I noticed was that a few graves, like the ones shown above, thoughtfully included a bench or seat for visitors to sit and think. Some famous people, like J. R. Simplot, are buried in that cemetery. His grave includes two benches.

Even if you don’t plan something thoughtful like a bench, the last name on your grave may still inadvertently make visitors chuckle.
