I recently placed my Dad in a long term care facility and just finished emptying his apartment. I discovered a very large 48 star flag folded (not triangular, it is folded in rectangle shape) in a cardboard box in a cedar chest. There is no identifying information with the flag. My sister and I believe it is the burial flag from my Dad's father, who served in WWI and died in 1940 when my Dad was 13 years old and there were only 48 states in the Union. Dad recently lost his father's fraternity ring which was the only physical momento of his father that he had. He would have been buried wearing that ring as he never took it off and it was of tremendous sentimental value to him, but now that is not possible. Neither my sister or I is interested in keeping/displaying this flag we found. We are thinking of refolding this flag into the proper triangle shape and placing it in the coffin with Dad when he passes, to be interred with him. He will be in an above ground mausoleum crypt. Is there any reason not to do this?
