Isn't it a little odd that her husband & her twin sister have the same last name?

Does this lady never have friends or family over? I wonder who turned her in.

When this lady dies who will take care of all of the bodies? There is no indication who will or if there is other extended family. I don't think that I would want to purchase the property where people had been denied a decent burial, or resting place. Imagine sitting on a couch for ten years - not even if it was a Sklar Peppler.No thanks, she may be a pleasant woman but this isn't real healthy emotionally. Live friends and comrades would be preferable.

True. But this woman is at an age where she has lived all of her life with her twin and a great majority of her life with the husband. She most likely, almost undoubtedly, carries on both sides of a conversation with the bodies with such clarity both in words and gestures that only she can see. And if there is no one to take care of them afterwards, give them all the proper burial they once had within the mausoleum. Obviously the town/county is going to have to redistrict that parcel of property in order to allow the mausoleum to be built there in the first place. She's not hurting anyone, no other family member is complaining. Let her live the way she wants to.

I agree, Turner. She is getting comfort from having them close by to her. Talking to them probably makes her/keeps her sane. Living alone after all those years of companionship would be tough on many people.

I admire your compassionate spirits but it would be better if people would invite her over for dinner or a church would take her under their wing, get her to help with stuffing envelopes etc.

There was something about her nature that stopped her from reaching out to others after the deaths of her partner and sister. I would try not to raise my children so that they would be "stuck" like that. It is true that she is not hurting anyone else though so I do bow to both of your comments and conclusions.
