    i honestly dont really see a major problem with this. as long as it doesnt go against anything in their last will and testament, she should get in no trouble. i can see wanting to spend time with deceased loved ones after their death, and this could be better than nothing.

    Well, they`d be quiet room mates.
    wouldn`t leave dirty dishes laying around or take the TV remote.
    And if you ever need a door stop . . .

    OK, in some ways I get it. I`m a twin and that relationship is so odd so maybe I would dig up my sister and put her in my spare room...but the husband part is just weird.

    WIDOW: Hello, how much would you charge to dig up a pair of freshly buried corpses and deliver them to my house?
    ED`S DIG `EM UP: We charge $57.23 per rotting corpse, ma`am, with an extra 10 dollars for any body part that falls off.
    WIDOW: Do I get a Senior Citizen discount?
    ED`S DIG `EM UP: No ma`am, but we are running a special this month, free de-beetle treatment with every disinterment.

    More understandable than anyone could possibly know. Most of us will feel exactly the same at her age. Death is certain, and being alone in our last years tedious, if not overwhelming. I say let her keep the bodies, it`s not like she`s desecrating them.

    Poor woman. My mother has a twin sister and they are inseparable. This woman probably hasn`t truly been alone a day in her life and then all of a sudden--both her husband and her sister are gone. Now she`s alone and trying to cope.

    And they actually just got word that she gets to keep them if she builds an above-ground crypt.

    And she`s going to.

    Opinion: I really disliked the narrator`s bouncing vocal tone. Not sure how to describe it, other than annoying and not-taking-the-issue-seriously.

    Genuine question to the userbase:

    What makes a source of information reliable to believe, without a shred of doubt in your head?

    "What makes a source of information reliable to believe, without a shred of doubt in your head?"

    absolutely nothing. But sometimes, when the sources seem reliable, I suspend my disbelief long enough to learn something.

    Nidonemo: Nothing, nothing makes a source so reliable that I won`t doubt it, even my own eyes. This isn`t said to be cool, but usually there are aspects to an event that are never known, and questioning may not get to the total truth, but you will see more of the event.

    A trusted source...I usually stick with the BBC, Reuters, the CBC, and Public Radio International. Between the four, you usually get the truth, or at least the closest to the truth.
