A Wandering People, Redefining Final Resting Place

By Bethamie Horowitz

Forward Association, February 24, 2006

The author connects the way in which most Americans move miles away from their families once they become adults to the increasing number of Americans deciding to be cremated rather than buried. The author asserts that because families have become so mobile, when a family member passes away, many times, their loved ones often don't live close enough to visit their grave. Therefore, many choose to get cremated, so that they can continue to be as mobile as their families once they pass away.
