Marco Island

No, being buried wouldn’t bother me. I’d be dead, and I wouldn’t know the difference. A mausoleum on Marco would be a good idea, why not? For those who are afraid to be buried or cremated, I guess, it’s fine. If they want to raise their own funds to do it, then I think it would be fine.

Marco Island

The idea of being buried does bother me. The thought of just taking up space in the ground bothers me. As for the mausoleum, I think taking up space above ground or below ground is the same thing, and both ideas bother me. Ideally, cremation would be an option. To me, it’s the right choice.

Marco Island

It bothers me on Marco Island, because we have such a high water table, that if you’re buried at six feet, you’re probably going to be swimming under there. That’s not good. So, I think that to be in a mausoleum ‘way above ground, that’s hurricane-proof, too, is better. And, I would like it to be on Indian Hill, too. Let’s build that mausoleum on Indian Hill, so I can look out from the afterlife, and keep an eye on Marco Island, and its inhabitants. And I would like my photograph on it, too.
