Question:Do you visit loved ones in the cemetery?

I bring my mom to visit with my dad sometimes. Of course it makes her sad, but she likes to sit and pray to me dad and I think it makes her feel closer to him.

Answer:

I do like to visit our family cemeteries, but mostly with other family members, like you are doing. Then it is a way for us to connect with each other in our memories and feelings about our family who have passed on. I never have a feeling that my family member is in the ground, but it is an emotional focusing of feelings about them.
