Wow this is such a crazy story .

Edna Lawson died on July 19, and she didn’t make it to her funeral. Her body was mixed up with that of another dead woman, who ended up buried in the plot next to the 81-year-old’s husband. Her son, Bruce Lawson, knew that the body he identified was not his mother, but a worker at Houston’s Mabrie Memorial Mortuary worker didn’t believe him. “I said to her it doesn’t look like my mom,” he told KHOU. “Do yo think maybe you have the wrong body? Maybe it’s someone else back there? And she said ‘We don’t make those kind of mistakes.’”
