How to use burial in a sentence?

  1. Charles Sizemore:

    An urn is certainly cheaper than a burial plot.

  2. Cesar Yabor:

    The technological capability to identify and verify unmarked burial sites through subsurface scanning or other means was far less robust 70 years ago, while the Corps made every effort at the time to locate unmarked burials.

  3. Emma Pomeroy:

    What is key here is the intentionality behind the burial. You might bury a body for purely practical reasons, in order to avoid attracting dangerous scavengers and/or to reduce the smell. But when this goes beyond practical elements it is important because that indicates more complex, symbolic and abstract thinking, compassion and care for the dead, and perhaps feelings of mourning and loss.

  4. Melinda Hunt:

    A Hart Island burial is not disrespectful, it's a very sacred place.

  5. Zaid Shakir:

    To be properly prepared for burial, prayed over and then buried is a right owed to every single Muslim, if no one fulfills those rights, then the entire community has fallen into sin. In the case of someone of Muhammad Ali's stature, to leave any of those rights unfulfilled would be a crime.
