How often do you visit gravesites?
Pretty much never. Once a year or so we go to the cemetary to feed the geese, but that's about it. I'd like to go visit my grandpa's grave sometime, though.
I visit my mother's gravesite about once every four months or so. Most of the people I've lost who were close to me are buried in my home state which makes visiting difficult.
Very rarely. For me, the essence of the people I have loved does not lie with their physical remains.
usually around the holidays or close to the person's birthday
Of people I know: a couple times a year. Otherwise we have a couple of very photogenic graveyards in town and we're not too far from Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Concord where the writers are. I still haven't been to Martha's Vineyard to see John Belushi, that's something I want to do soon.
Not really. I prefer to remember the deceased through pictures and memory.
The graves of my parents and my son are all far away.
Whenever I'm searching for a record or whenever my mom or grams wants to go.
About once a year, mostly to make sure that the gravesites don't look too shabby. I don't need to go for myself, since I'm pretty much at peace with the fact that my loved ones are gone. I certainly don't need to go for them, because it doesn't make any difference to them.
Every birthday of the deceased, though most of my dead relatives are buried too far away to visit much.
At this point, every couple years I'll visit gravesites, no specific ones, just interesting looking cemetaries.
Never ... I wander through a graveyard on the way to uni though, if that counts?!
Everytime I go home to NJ, I visit my parents -- probably 4 or 5 times a year. I usually drag a few of my siblings along with me.
dont visit gravesites and i probably never will. i dont plan on going
to any funerals either. i dont know many people who have died and no one
close to me has died yet.
Not very often. Maybe once or twice a year. My parents are buried close to my house - so distance is not the excuse. I just do not find any comfort in going there.
