In fact, in many ways you have more options than a traditional burial.
Final Resting Place Options
Just as with a burial service, you have options regarding a final place of rest. Some may choose a special indoor/outdoor niche, while others prefer the more traditional burial plot, mausoleum, columbarium or urn garden.
