Abstract

Rest in Peace reveals the personality of cemeteries and their ability to befriend those that walk their paths. They ask questions about our lives, our relationships, our family history, what we will do with our bodies when we die, and share of themselves as well and of who now resides within their grounds. These questions also have the potential to inspire research, as seen in this essay. We examine the options we have in regards to where we send our bodies when we no longer need them, what affects our seemingly simple choices have, and how humanity is connected through death and burial.
