Cubs Fans Forever

cubs-urn.jpgConstruction has begun on Beyond the Vines, the ultimate in final resting places for die-hard Cubs fans.

The Beyond the Vines memorial wall is 35 feet long and 14 feet tall, located in Bohemian National Cemetery, at Foster and Pulaski. It's designed to look like Wrigley Field's center field wall, complete with ivy, and topped by a 7'x4' stained glass replica of the scoreboard. When complete it will contain 280 "eternal luxury sky boxes" for your or your loved one's remains.

Slots are filling up (must resist "dying to get in" joke); if you're interested, call 773-463-4696 for pricing and more information.
