Death is a reality of life that none of us will be able to avoid. Where a person chooses their final resting place is a decision that some make early in life and others chose to let wills do the talking for them.

I had a conversation with my wife the other day about death. I can't seem to make up my mind on whether or not I want to be buried or cremated. As I get older, a burial seems to be what I'm leaning toward. Cremation isn't nearly as expensive as a burial, so I'm still considering that because I don't want to leave any financial burden on my family.

Idaho has many amazing historic cemeteries as well. The Boise Military Cemetery is a magnificent example of one of Idaho's most visually stunning cemeteries.

Thirty-four percent of Americans chose burial over cremation, according to Religion plays into the decision to be buried over cremated as well. Many Christians and Jewish people are steadfast in the belief that an Earthly burial is the only appropriate method.

If my family chooses to follow through with a burial, I've asked to carry out my eternal slumber somewhere near the ocean in California. The Monterey and Carmel areas are very special to me as I lived in the area for a couple of years.

Idaho is an incredibly beautiful state too, and I can't say I'd be disappointed to be buried somewhere in the south central mountains; Ketchum Cemetery comes to mind. Stanley Lake is my favorite place to visit in the Gem State. Idaho has many amazing historic cemeteries as well. The Boise Military Cemetery is a magnificent example of one of Idaho's most visually stunning cemeteries.
