That is the natural way.

And I shall hear, tho' soft you tread above me
And all my dreams will warm and sweeter be
If you'll not fail to tell me that you love me
I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.

i think that we should bury our loved ones whereever we can if that is able, the cost for a funeral is outrages, if you own that home or land it is yours you do what you want, bless this family i am glad they have there son close th home!!!!!!

Well in fairness we can't have everyone burying folks willy nilly because the murder issue, communicable disease etc. And bodies buried everywhere makes it a problem for future land use. The proper way would be to get a death certificate cremate the body and bury the ashes without an urn.

some people do not want to cremate, and buried wherever if done proper is the same wherever, people discard of ashes in the sea, off mountains, outta planes etc........never know whats all arond ya, i imagine the family will never move since that is where the sons buried and they will probably b buried there too. down here in nc it is done often.... i have only been to one funeral where a mans son died in a motorcycle accident, i was probably 4 at the time, they had his funeral and body at the home for all services and laid him to rest in their backyard, it may seem creepy to some, but it is done, throw me in a cardboard box when im gone for all i care.

This is the kind of action that people from hondorus or elsalvadore do because they are natural crooks and their level of education is of a primate or monkey. Their ability to reason is nothing more than a crazy animal that escaped from a cage.

Murder issue? Do you really think that was a smart comment? If someone buries a loved one in their backyard how does that compare to murder? Lets concider this RECYCLE going green. We all are biodegradable.Look it's his land his son. God Bless him. As far as future land use. Why Do you want another strip mall big box store? Hope you never feel the pain of a dead CHILD. My love goes out to him and his family.

Sounds like Casey wanting to keep her child close too. Caley was only 15 houses from home.....

I would not want to bury a family member out back and then years later someone accidentally dig him/her up. I couldn't imagine. But I don't think there is anything wrong with it.

I would rather have them buried in my back yard so that way nobody would mess with the grave site. Look at how many shit heads go out and kick over head stones and look at how many grave robbers there are. At least in death you know they will be safe.
