Honor The Memory

Aside from crucifixes and statues of angels replacing ancient deities, I wonder if Catholicism changed much in the way South American cultures buried and remembered their death. The graveyards in Mexico are definitely colorful with prominent displays of the idols.
Here pictures of the Cementerio Xoclan in Merida, YUC. It looks to me like a city of miniature temples.
