Woman dies next to own grave

2006_11_01t101956_450x338_us_dutch_grave.jpgA Dutch woman, who had meticulously planned her own funeral after the death of her husband last year, died next to the grave in Amsterdam where she wanted to be buried, a newspaper reported.The 65-year-old widow probably died of a heart attack while she was visiting the family grave where her name, but no date, was already inscribed, De Telegraaf daily reported Wednesday.

The woman was carrying a bag with her containing her will when she died and had already organized details of her funeral including the music she wanted played, the paper said. - yahoo

I imagine that she was a polite and thoughtful lady who wanted to make an interesting exit. This way perhaps she was thinking there would be no transportation costs regarding her demise?

I heard a story about an old Native American man who checked into a hospital and told the doctors he'd come there to die. He was examined and was told he was fine. He insisted on staying the night. In the morning, he'd expired. Urban legend?
