Some people have strange ways of honoring their loved ones who have passed a way. Take Adriana Villarreal, an Argentine widow who sleeps in her late husband’s small mausoleum to keep him company, because she loves him so much.
43-year-old Adriana Villarreal, from Buenos Aires, recently made headlines in the Argentinian media after she confessed spending a few nights a year in her dead husband’s mausoleum. According to Gustavo Braganza, a police commissioner from the town of Dos de Mayo, his colleagues went to investigate what was going on in the San Lazaro cemetery, after reports of someone living there and playing loud music. When they knocked on the tomb door, Villarreal greeted them in her pijamas, and they could actually see she had been living next to a coffin and an embalmed body.
When police checked out the tomb she had been living in for a few days, they discovered she had renovated it, and brought in a bed, a radio, a computer with Internet connection and even a small cooker. Asked if she was afraid of sleeping in the cemetery next to an embalmed corpse, the 43-year-old said it’s the living we should all be afraid of. Although she also visits her husband’s parents whenever she comes to town and has lunch with them, she prefers to spend her nights by her husband’s side, to keep him company./odditycentral.com/
