An angry neighbor, Anna Woods, wrote in an email: “The area is well served by local churches and I feel there is no need for a well-known person to create his own island of calm when lovely places of worship abound in the area.”
Regarding what plans the building will have for the graveyard she stated: “I also note there will be a burial chamber in the building. Are celebrities now so detached from reality that their every living breath and now even the act of dying be apart from the rest of us?”
