First Wife Of Marlon Brando Denied Request To Be Buried Next To Son

Marlon brandoThe late wife of actor Marlon Brando has been denied her request to be buried in the plot next to her oldest son.  Instead Anna Kashfi ended up being buried in the plot above her son, which means that they will be “head to head.”  Kashfi passed away at the age of 80 after a battle with breast and colon cancer.  The reason that she could not be buried in the plot next to her son Christian was due to the fact that the plot had been previously purchased by Christian’s former wife Mary.  When representatives of Kashfi’s estate contacted Mary she refused to give up the plot.  This article goes into detail describing the tumultuous backstory that lead up to this recent dispute.
