You Alright Then Mum?

I think we can all sympathize here:

A German left his dead mother seated in her favorite armchair at their shared home for two years because he could not face organizing a funeral, police in the southern town of Fuerstenfeldbruck said Friday.

The woman died of natural causes in the chair in July 2005 at the age of 92, a police spokesman said. A doctor called to the scene at the time gave the son a death certificate but he did not register the death.

It all sounds most odd of course, but then people can fin it difficult to do things. At least one thing makes me relieved. He never went back into the room again, which at least means that he wasn't sitting there with her watching TV of anything.
