  • I visited my mom's grave when I was up there in May. I do every time I visit that area.

  • I haven't gone in years, and don't plan to any time soon. I hate visiting graves.

  • I honor my loved ones by remembering them alive. Not staring at the ground.
    I don't go graves.

  • Not in a very long time, but for me it's not like he's there anyway. But I do believe he can hear me, so sometimes I talk to him.

  • My father's or mother's not in at least 15 years
    DH's side we skipped last year but it is our duty to tend that set of graves on Memorial day. It is not exactly the same as visiting the graesite. DH does but I am just fulfilling traditions. There is noe one in the grave anyway. JMO

  • We go every few months to two different cemeteries. We plant flowers in the spring & go for Holidays too. My Dad passed less than a year ago. It's just out of respect & to take a moment to reflect. I bring my kids to see poppy too. My Son adored him. They are very much alike :)
