You Put Your Wife Where?
Date Added: Nov. 14, 2000
The Internet is great for satisfying people's curious fixation on the gruesome and bizarre. The story of the wife in the coffee table is a perfect example. But, it's also a great example of why you can't trust most of what you see online.
I think this has to be a joke; first of all, look how the woman is dressed!? What do you guys think? Amy
Do you love your spouse THIS much????
What would you do for love??? Jeff Green is a 32 year old American, in Arizona, whose wife passed. Due to the great pain he suffered due to her death, he did something totally out of character for a normal and sane person. He said, " I could no longer take the pain that my wife's death is caused me and I brought her back home."
This is where Jeff's story takes a twisted turn. His wife, Lucy, was born with a heart condition that cut her life at the young age of 29. Lucy's last words to Jeff were, " We will meet again in heaven." These words served of no consolation to Jeff's despair. At the funeral, in an act of desperation, Jeff decided that he Would not let Lucy leave him. "I called the cemetery caretaker and explained my feelings. I spoke with the authorities and got special permission to take my wife home with me. They thought it strange, but I was allowed to take her with me. I rather have her at home than six feet under ground. Lucy had a great sense of humor and I'm sure she would appreciate being my coffee table." Jeff ordered a special glass casing that prevents the decomposition of a dead body. "It cost me about $6,000.00, but it was worth it." Some of his friends and relatives, filled with fear, stopped visiting Jeff. His "true friends" respected his decision and continue visiting him. Some even comment that it is a nice piece of furniture.
