Re: burials of suicides #general

A family member died by suicide. He was buried in the US in a
landsmannschaft section. The rules for burial of suicides were interpreted
in his case to mean that he should be buried outside the normal rows that
make up the section. The only space available was at the back of the
central pathway. Now, in this cemetery landsmannschaft sections are
entered through elaborate gateways erected by the members.That means that
his is the most prominent stone that you see as you approach the section!
