Who made the cut?

I've narrowed down who will be in my program "Funerals of the Rich & Famous." It was a tough decision!

These are the finalists:
  • Anna Nicole Smith (see previous post for WHY she's included!!)
  • Sarah Bernhardt
  • Elvis Presley
  • Jim Morrison
  • Rudolph Valentino
  • Marilyn Monroe
  • Judy Garland
  • Bob Hope
  • Johnny Carson
  • Joseph Stalin
  • Pope John Paul II
  • Eva Peron
  • Martin Luther King, Jr.
  • Albert Einstein
  • Jim Henson
  • Grace Kelly
  • Princess Diana
The hardest part was deciding who to include. There are so many to choose from! I think these all have interesting stories with them, as well as some name recognition to get people to come to the program.

We'll only spend a few minutes on each one. For some, an image exists of them actually in their coffin, which I find fascinating in itself! For all, there is at least something representing the huge funeral procession, tributes left at the grave, or some other memorial-related activity.

It should be an interesting program!

And don't forget, it includes a guided tour of the Keller Gallery exhibits Going Out in Style and Stories in Stone!
