Hugh Hefner To Be Buried Next To Marilyn Monroe

Playboy founder Hugh Hefner — who died of natural causes on Wednesday at the age of 91 is to be buried next to Marilyn Monroe at the Westwood Village Memorial Park in Los Angeles, California.





Hefner bought the crypt next to Monroe's for a reported $75,000 in 1992 — nearly four decades after he featured the Hollywood icon on the cover of Playboy's first-ever issue in 1953.

The issue, which sold 50,000 copies, catapulted the magazine to success after Hefner started it in his kitchen with an $8,000 loan.

Hefner discussed the vault purchase in a 2000 Playboy interview.

"Jay Leno suggested that if I was going to spend that kind of money, I should actually be on top of her," Hefner said. "But to me there's something rather poetic in the fact that we'll be buried in the same place. And that cemetery also has other meanings and connections for me. Friends like Buddy Rich and Mel Torme are buried there. So is Dorothy Stratten."

Burial? i dont think so.
I'd rather go the Game of thrones way, nothing for the insect & worms of the earth.
