Default The dead don't want to stay in Detroit

I buried my mother last year, in Ohio.

I've read about other poeple moving their loved ones to another cemetery, but that would not be practical for us, since we do move often. I just wish they were in a better place-----but they are!
Thats terrible!

If this trend continues, maybe they'll finally be able to extend the runway at city airport. (Cemetery currently prevents this).
