My Parents Bought Burial Plots

My parents recently bought burial plots in our synagogue’s cemetery. I was initially shocked; they were in their late fifties and people in both my mom’s and dad’s families often live well into their nineties, so, God willing, they still had decades to go. They were both healthy and active, and my brother and I were in our early twenties and busy with school. This was not the time to be planning for their deaths.
