1. I believe there is something in Islamic tradition about burying the body — as soon as possible — in an unmarked grave. It seems as if this was entirely appropriate, though perhaps unthought of in a desert environment.


  2. I think it’s a good idea. As maryz said, it can’t become a shrine. And also, it can’t be dug up. He’s gone. No one will be able to disturb his “grave” this way.


  3. If we were on Facebook, I’d be clicking *like* on all your comments, especially Jon’s. There’s nothing I can add.
