Some family members are protesting the decision to entomb unidentifiable remains of the 9/11 dead below ground ["Final resting place," News, May 11].

I feel the same way as these family members. There should be a glass area where the three metal cases could rest. If I were a family member, I would want a place to go to pray, not have the remains 70 feet below ground. It's like they are forgotten.

I lost some friends at Ground Zero on 9/11, and this is what I would want.
