The Final Resting Places Of These Famous People Are Deeply Moving… And VERY Fascinating.
You've heard the old cliche: Stars: They're just like us!
Celebrities might be in the spotlight, but on any given day, you can find them buying coffee, reading the paper, and performing any number of routine tasks. And, just like us regular folks, all celebrities eventually take a permanent vacation to that deluxe apartment in the sky. Sometimes it's tragic, and other times it's a long time coming, but either way, we miss them.
If you've ever found yourself wondering about the final resting places of some of your favorite celebs, look no further. Here are 20 big-time celebrity graves (and some interesting facts about them, too!)
#1. Princess Diana
Like the other members of her family, Princess Diana is buried on a private island in the middle of a lake owned by the estate. For outsiders who want to pay their respects, a pillar was also constructed in her name.
#2. Frank Sinatra
Old Blue Eyes famously left this world with the parting words "I'm losing," before succumbing to a heart attack. His marker reads "The Best is Yet to Come," and he was buried with a bottle of Jack Daniels and pack of cigarettes, which are Rat Pack essentials (even in the afterlife).
#3. Whitney Houston
Whitney Houston's death was a surprisingly difficult blow to the music industry. To memorialize her, her grave is heart-shaped and is inscribed with phrases such as "The Voice" and "I Will Always Love You." Houston is buried next to her father.
#4. Edgar Allen Poe
Though he's long gone, Edgar Allen Poe still gets an important visitor at his grave. The Poe Toaster is said to be a mysterious figure who left cognac at Poe's grave, as well as notes for visitors, since the 1940s! Up until 2012, the identity of the Poe Toaster was widely debated but never determined - but it was that year that the visits suddenly stopped. The Poe Toaster hasn't been heard from since.
The Hispanic pop idol was famously murdered by the head of her fan club at age 23. Her elaborate grave is located in Corpus Christi, Texas, the same city where she was killed.
#6. Jim Morrison
Jim Morrison died tragically young at 27 of a drug overdose in Paris. It is there that his body remains to this day. His father designed his grave marker, which says "ΚΑΤΑ ΤΟΝ ΔΑΙΜΟΝΑ ΕΑΥΤΟΥ." Translated roughly from Greek, this means "faithful to his own spirit."
