When Gainesville physician Dr. Kathy Cantwell died last summer, her friends and family buried her just the way the longtime environmentalist wanted. She was not embalmed and had neither a costly casket nor a tombstone.
She was buried directly in the soil of Prairie Creek Conservation Cemetery, 78 acres of sand hills and hardwood hammock edged by wetlands, where the grave sites are marked with nothing but trees, prairie grasses and bursts of wildflowers in the springtime.
