Hi everyone. I wonder this,
"His adult children want him buried next to their mother, first his wife."
I used to use like this, His adult children want him to be buried ...
Is that a impossible to put in?

    Either "want him buried" or "want him to be buried" is suitable.

    It should be, if I understand the intended meaning correctly, "his first wife" rather than "first his wife."
