People have different ways of grieving the death of a family member, but the body usually doesn't sit in the home too long after death. Some folks cannot bear to part with the recently deceased, so they go a different route and let the dead bodies of their family members stick around for a while.
People who lived with their dead relatives did so for a myriad of reasons. For some, it's financial gain, whether it's spending the deceased's money or to continue collecting retirement or social security checks. Other people who lived with their dead relatives have done so because they cannot imagine their lives without their relatives, so they refuse to let it happen. Denial is the first step in the grieving process and sometimes, people get really stuck there. The following tales are true stories of people who lived with dead family members.
