Mausoleums are big

I'm not quite sure why. It's not like you'll be better off if the worms don't get to you. But apparently they're something of a status symbol, or so says the Times.

"The mausoleum says, 'I'm really significant in this world, I think I'm really significant to my family,' and this is one way to communicate that to the community," said Nancy Lohman, an owner along with her husband, Lowell, of this and several dozen other Florida cemeteries and funeral homes.

Are you really significant to the world, is the question. I tend to doubt anyone will remember Mr. Peck in a century, no offense, I'm pretty sure no one will remember me a century after my death either.
