Famous Last Words: Celebrity Funerals, Monuments & Epitaphs with Susan Gibberman, life-long television, and film aficionado
Celebrities make a name for themselves in life but some also make a name for themselves in death, commemorating their passing with elaborate funerals, what they chose to be buried with, their monuments, or even their “last words,” literally written in stone, often more than simply “Rest in Peace.” Learn how these celebrities were honored and remembered after their deaths. And, you will find, some really knew how to go out with a bang.
