I have never owned a pool or lived anywhere that had a pool. However, there are two things I am absolutely certain of when it comes to pool ownership. They are a pain in the ass to maintain and you never get as much use out of them as you think you will. Now you throw a kid into the mix and you begin to realize that children become infatuated with things for short periods of time and then forget about them completely. You think this pool is any different? That kid is going to want to go to 'the pool' everyday for two months then never want to set foot in it again. Partially because he'll get tired of it and partially with age he will realize he's playing at a grave sight. Enjoy skimming that bad boy when it hasn't gotten use in five years. Hope they sell Barbie size pool covers.
I have to imagine someone that builds a body of water on top of a loved one's grave still has his passing fresh in their mind. The last thing you want to do when mourning someone is constantly be reminded of them. The most painful part of the grieving process is the initial part, and the initial part is when this kid is going to want to get the most use out of his new 'toy'. In theory, it's a very sweet idea. Absolutely had all the right intentions. In practice, it is probably going to suck to have to take your child swimming at the graveyard three times a week.
I don't want to criticize this too much because like I said, it's a cute concept. However, it is a little creepy, no? Isn't a child playing in a burial pool eerily reminiscent of dancing on a grave? I understand celebrating a life instead of mourning a death, but shouldn't the atmosphere at a cemetery be a little more somber? After all, you might offend people that didn't bring their swimmies looking for a pool party.
