Sometimes death is not as tragic as not knowing how to live. This man knew how to live--and how to make others glad they were living. - Jack Benny at Nat King Cole's funeral

I think it's both quite sad and also creepy (can you say, Norman Bates?).

Even hearing that folks have ashes of someone in the house makes me feel uneasy.

Yes, it's very difficult to let go when someone dies. But isn't that what photographs and sentimental items are for and not corpses?

Nice lady. Can imagine her being concerned about her sister and claustrophobia. At her age she's closer to the corpses than most of the others she meets in her day-to-day. A sweet sad story of a woman who wanted familiar faces around.
