Dear A. C.:

I am planning to visit a cemetery for the first time in a long time and I am not sure about the proper etiquette to follow. Specifically, I am concerned about how to behave during Memorial Day and other times of the year when the cemetery is likely to be crowded with other visitors paying their respects. Can you please provide me with some guidance on the proper cemetery etiquette that I should follow?
