Bones of cadavers found at VCU well

The amount of " honors" plaques,dedications and numerous dedication mechanisms seem a little over the top for corpses of individuals used for science. Today there are many people who " donate" their deceased bodies for study to further science a require no monuments,plaques annual dedications etc. This is NOT to say they shouldn't be apoligize do to as well as have their names plaqued for recognition of their "sacrifice" but all this additional grandiose preparations are " over the top. Make one ask "Wonder why there is so much of it for these particular folks?"
