I just went with my father to the cemetery in Hackettstown.. Union Cemetery. He went ahead and bought 8 plots. We were both taken aback at the price of the lot… $4,000 gets a 16? by 20? foot space, 8 plots all together in 2 rows. That price also includes maintenance in perpetuity! That’s lawn mowing, tree trimming, road maintenance, etc… FOREVER. Like… in 1,000 years (assuming society exists) we should assume that our graves will be carefully mowed and landscaped.
With that kind of deal, I suggested that we make our front and back yard into a graveyard. What do you think?
