Ebay bidder pays $4.6 million to rest in peace next to Marilyn Monroe
Each of us wants to be remembered, and we hope that our passage from this world would be marked by a ceremony of some sort. However, a few of us can actually afford once in a lifetime opportunity, to spend the gratification in grave, of sleeping right next to Marilyn Monroe.
The burial plot next to Marilyn Monroe, that turns out to be one of the most expensive pieces of real estate on the market, was sold to an eBay bidder for 4.6 million U.S. dollars. The crypt in the Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park was placed for sale on eBay 10 days ago for a starting price of 500,000 dollars, and the bidding ended at noon Monday local time when the final price reached 4,602,100 dollars. The burial site also holds the crypts of celebrities like Natalie Wood, Dean Martin and the recently passed Farrah Fawcett. Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion is located in the same neighborhood.
Not at all a bad decision, for the bidder will enjoy eternal resting, if there is consciousness beyond the grave.
