Other – Cremated

This is a blog about visiting the final resting places of famous people.  It’s incredibly difficult to visit said places when said famous people are cremated and their ashes are either scattered to the wind (or ocean…or whatever) or given to a family or friend to be locked away in a private residence.  But, that is exactly what happened to some of my favorite celebrities’ remains. And, I wanted to be able to, at least, pay tribute to them here.  So, I will be writing up entries on some or all of the following grave-less personalities at some point, if only to be able to type the following sentence:

“Hunter S. Thompson’s ashes were fired out of a cannon from atop a 150 ft. tall statue of a fist.”
