It would have been cheaper to toss him in the recyclables on trash day. Totally ridiculous, what a waste of money.

That's about right. HE is interred in a beautiful place. Are there on-going expenses for his interment? Only you are resting in peace MJ. Your family is going nuts.

Everytime I see MJ's pic, my heart bleeds. This man had no love in his life, just torment, abuse, and vulturizing. His parents ought to be ashamed but I guess Joe would say he made him a millionaire and for him that's good enough. THe semi literate fools! I am sure Mj would rather be alive and poor than dead rich!
