With the ease of GPS and Google Maps on our laptops, Blackberries and phones, getting lost is really about poor preparation these days. If you do find yourself not knowing the correct address or zip code or with-out modern technology, some one is usually about with a phone or GPS that can help. That said; have you gone to a cemetery lately to try and find the grave of a relative?
If you frequent the graves of your loved ones often, you are all set. You know where they are, and you know how to find them. No alternate road detours or new tombstones are going to deter you from your destination. If you don’t go to the cemetery but once a year or less, it can be a challenge to find the grave you seek.
Picture a beautiful sunny day, and you and your family decide with flowers in hand to visit the grave of a loved one. Road construction makes you take an unfamiliar road into the cemetery. There is a service going on down the road so to be respectful you park what you think is a short distance away and start walking toward the grave site of your dearly departed. 20 minutes later you are still walking. The flowers are going limp, the family is getting cranky, you are sweating and still no success on your destination. You see a black large tombstone and hurry your walk certain you are close, but no, it is new. In fact there are several new tombstones and trees and unfamiliar landmarks. Wouldn’t this be a good time for Cemetery GPS?
