Don't die yet!

Original post made on Dec 17, 2008

If you want to be buried in Pleasanton, don't die yet. The City Council voted last night to allow sales of burial plots once again at the now-renamed Pleasanton Pioneer Cemetery on Sunol Boulevard, but no sooner than next March after up to 50 full-size gravesites and another 50 cremains niches are installed.

Sounds like some pretty exclusive acreage, pricey and small quantities.

This is why I've requested to be cremated in my will and have my ashes scattered over City Hall.

If they want to sell that landscape at that price, they should probably improve the landscaping first - like putting in sprinklers. The place looks pretty good right now, but in the summer, it looks terrible with all the brown lawn and weeds. It's like moving to Seattle in the summer - the weather is beautiful, but living there in the winter is a different story. Go to the cemetery now, and it looks fine, but you don't even want to visit in the summer.

The Pleasanton Weekly should be ashamed of this headline, it shows a lack of maturity and respect.

I don't think that the headline is unprofessional/disrespectful.

Please citizens, try taking the HIGH ROAD...I guarantee that you will feel more appreciative and at peace.

Advice: If you can't live and you can't die, make coffee!

And, if for whatever reason, you cannot take the HIGH ROAD, just keep trying, it takes time but even you can do se puede!!!

Glad to hear this......and also hope that they include maintenance in the fees charged and make this a perpetual care cemetery.

It just goes to show. Living and dying is going to cost you if you live in Pleasanton. I remember a time when living was cheap here. Then the mall came and then hacienda park. Pleasanton used to be a small town that was nice to live in. Now everything has a price tag here. A big one! Live on people. Don't die here, yet.

A particularly tacky headline in an edition with a story on hope hospice. Shame.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
