I find it keeps them in line. Oh wait, you mean she's already dead.
 
2013-11-15 09:56:39 AM  
On the other hand, now there's an empty grave in his front yard.
 
2013-11-15 09:58:03 AM  
It's hard to move on. Of course, he could have had her stuffed and just kept her in the basement.

And her name was Patsy.
 
2013-11-15 10:05:27 AM  
James probably lover her very much and dug the hole himself with his John Deere Model 602 with optional backhoe attachment.
 
2013-11-15 10:06:02 AM  
He probably dug the hole while she was still alive though.

ALABAMA MAN!

No sense waiting until the last minute and that way Patsy could have been pretty sure that her wishes were going to be carried out.
 
2013-11-15 10:07:43 AM  
And speaking of carried out, what are the odds that he rolled her up in her favorite rug?
 
2013-11-15 10:08:14 AM  
He should just remove the headstone.

I'm sure nothing bad could come of it.
 
2013-11-15 10:08:18 AM  
I'm thinking the odds were pretty good myself.
 
2013-11-15 10:09:12 AM  
He probably killed their yappy little dog Larry and rolled him up in the rug with her. The old "Two Birds" move.
 
2013-11-15 10:09:37 AM  
Alabama MAAAAWN.
 
2013-11-15 10:10:04 AM  
James and Larry never did get along very well after all.
 
2013-11-15 10:10:56 AM  
Ask most people and they would agree that Larry was a furry little pain in the ass.
 
2013-11-15 10:11:48 AM  
James probably told anyone that asked that Larry ran off after Patsy died.
 
2013-11-15 10:13:05 AM  
Yep, ol' Larry probably ran off to find Patsy's real killer, just like O.J.
 
2013-11-15 10:13:50 AM  
Anyway, James is probably an OK guy. I feel a little sorry for him.
 
2013-11-15 10:14:28 AM  
Not that Larry though. F*ck Larry.
 
2013-11-15 10:16:53 AM  
I was going to be buried under the lilac bush in the back yard, but it occurred to me that that might make it hard for my son to sell this dump after I'm gone. Nobody's going to know about all the pets under the lilac bush.

And you should see the lilacs.

My father in law kept shrines in his bedroom of both his wife and one of his daughters - complete with their urns.

I kinda thought this was odd, myself.  So when he passed away, both of those urns were burried with him.  Seemed to make much more sense to us.
 
2013-11-15 10:59:11 AM  
Just move the headstone.  Problem solved...

I have something similar for my late wife.  It helps me cope.  Probably did for your father, as well.  Eventually I may scatter the ashes, or die also, be mixed with them, and then scattered, but for now it's a decent coping mechanism.

I understand some might find it weird.  But there again, I'm pretty sure most people find me weird, in general.

I don't think it's weird.  And I do kinda understand the coping mechanism.  But if it's not your loved ones in question, it appears kinda creepy.

Wasn't there a guy once who had his dead wife in a clear coffee table in his living room?
 
2013-11-15 11:25:18 AM  
can someone tell me what the REAL problem with this dude having his wife buried where she wanted to be buried is?

seriously.  who farking cares, and WHY?

leave the poor old dude alone.

It's fine if you want to keep the ashes, but they do need to be in a proper, respectful, container.

Apparently the babyquarium picture has been banned. So just imagine it here.

Fair enough.  I've been aware from the beginning that it kind of straddles that line between creepy and understandable, and I try to keep it as not-creepy as possible.  But I can completely see how others, particularly those outside the family, might view it differently than I.  Doesn't mean I'll change, at least not for the foreseeable future, but at least I'm semi-aware.  I think.

I don't think there's anything creepy about it, any more than keeping their picture or some article of clothing that they liked to wear. We all think cemeteries are fine, where we go to see our dead friends and relatives. Why not have them right there in the house, so you can talk to them whenever you want?

Have a taxidermist mount the head on a plaque for the wall and cremate the rest.

Yeah - I don't see where a grave on the property is any less creepy than crockery full of the departed's ashes. Me, I am getting my ashes made into a diamond or maybe fireworks.

I wonder if he's related to Florida Man.

Amen.  I assume it is his property.  The city should stfu.  The grave was harming nobody, was bringing comfort to the old dude and was what the wife wanted.
