    Luckily I don't have many to visit. One grandpa I don't go to often, it's not in my hometown and I have problems getting there and back. But though, I could do it more often.

    No. I believe in an afterlife so for me they are not there. I can be close to them in my memories.

    Not often, but regularly on special occasions I visit my mother's grave.

    ....yeah, I do...they're in a VERY old New England cemetery and it's nice to pay homage to them. Because of the age of the cemetery there is some absolutely wonderful sculptures in this particular cemetery (from fortunes made in the days of whaling and the slave trade) and it's a photographers paradise...

    No. As the Klingons say...it is an empty carcass. The katra , aka living spirit is gone. I visit them in my mind. That which lays in the ground is gone.

    No because nearly all of them were cremated and the ashes scattered.

    I visit my Gram's grave whenever I go back to my hometown.

    It's been a while.

    No we sprinkled their ashes mixed together on a windy day, so they are all over the place.

    No, most people in my family have been cremated. My mother was, and we still haven't spread her ashes, so she resides in our home. I can visit her whenever. Or, I used to be able to, until my brother moved her. I have no idea where he put her..

    No, I hate cemeteries. A waste of good real estate, if you ask me.
    When I die;
    Dig a hole, strip me naked, throw me in and cover me up ...or don't cover me up (coyotes got to eat too)
    The point?
    When life leaves this body, the body becomes compost nothing more. nothing to visit.

    no not really.. initially when they first cross over....... but after that, when I want their comfort or consultation, I call out to them and wait for their spirit to come to me.... and that typically happens in my sleep or during deep meditation..

    I do, but I haven't done so in a long time. Some of my relatives are in Canada, so I'm too far away to really visit. Although I would like to see the grave of my maternal grandfather. I never got to meet him, he died at age 32 in a plane crash when mom was 7. I try to visit my other grandparent's graves too, but not as often. My parents moved from the town my paternal grandparents are born in, so I don't get there as often anymore.
