Choice of burial!?

The readings of these days tell the story of Joseph and Isaac. The latter, even after spending years in comforting bosom of Egypt, wishes to be buried back in his 'native place', Israel. There are several others too whom I have heard, express their wish (quite strongly) about being buried in this place or that. I find that quite strange. As a religious, I believe we belong to the place where we are... not from where we come and where we intend to be. From that perspective, it makes no sense that our dead bodies be interned in some specific place and not anywhere.

Frankly speaking, I wonder what impact is that going to make on me - I'm dead!
