Who carries human ashes around with them?
Human Ashes Left At Liquor Store Claimed By Woman
Grandma is turning in her grave….oh wait.
According to The NY Daily News
A bag of human ashes labeled “grandma” mistakenly left at a Kansas liquor store has been claimed by the deceased woman’s daughter.
Store owner Charlie Nguyen posted signs at his Wichita store, Charlie’s Liquor and Smoke Shop, and even put an ad on Craigslist to track down the bag’s owner after it was left at his store two weeks ago, local KNS TV reported.
A sign on the pouch said the ashes were the remains of Helen K. Dapron, who died on June 31, 2010, at 79.
On Thursday, Dapron’s daughter, Kathy Leonard, came by the store to pick up the remains, Nguyen told the Daily News.
“She was crying,” Nguyen said. “She said, ‘You’re a good man. Anybody else, they might have thrown it away.’”
Leonard told KNS she planned to keep the ashes in a safe place so that they wouldn’t get lost again.
Leonard had given the ashes to her son, who left them at the counter while shopping there, Nguyen told The News.
“Just like that, people leave phone, keys, stuff like that all the time, but I’ve never seen anything like this,” Nguyen told KNS.
