Grave News: Reach out and touch someone...on the other side.

People have many different ways of memorializing their dead. Some write tributes. Some have special rememberance ceremonies. Some build memorials.

Some call the dead on their cell phones.

When Mariann Seltzer's husband died, she and her children had him buried with his (fully charged) cell phone. His number is engraved on his tombstone, and his bill is paid every month. His family calls and leaves voicemail to update him on noteworthy events.

Isn't human adaptability great?

I'm disappointed they didn't have an outlet installed so the phone could remain charged.
