Visiting Dead Celebrities Again

Los Angeles, CA—In Westwood Village there is a very small cemetery that has more celebrity remains per square foot than anywhere. A prime piece of this real estate can set you back by a half-million bucks.

If you’re buried here the star gazing tourists will be walking on your grave trying to figure out what made you so important to be buried here. Actors, comedians, musicians, singers, composers, writers, directors, producers, talent agents from the A list can all be found here.

If there is something strange about this cemetery, it's the sheer diversity of the people buried here. Jews, Muslims, Catholics, Protestants, atheists, and members of every race or sexual orientation can be found side by side. The souls here live in peace that they never enjoyed while they were alive.

People here died very young like Poltergeist actress Heather O’Rourke or were murdered like Dorothy Stratton and Bob Crane. Some died from accidents like Natalie Wood and Beach Boy, Dennis Wilson. Cancer got a gang of these folks taking them at disturbingly young ages. Other managed to live rich and full lives but their age caught up with them finally.

Like sands through the hour glass, so are the days of our lives. Oh, William Bell who created that soap opera is buried here too.

UPDATE: The bidding for the spot above Marilyn Monroe is at $4.6 and is still climbing! Yikes! Read more here.
