Death is inevitable and sooner or later everyone meets this fate.
It’s scary not for those who leave but for those who remain. It’s difficult for relatives to reconcile with a severe loss and they often remain in mourning for a long time. Those who are religious have it easier because they have hope that they will be reunited with their beloved person in heaven. Atheists have it a lot worse.
Over time, both believers and nonbelievers must accept the fact that they will no longer be able to see the person who has departed. They suffer and to feel a little bit of relief, they visit the graves of their dead. This is what Rudy Gonzalez did. Twenty-four hours after his wife’s death he went to her grave at the La Entrada General Cemetery in Honduras. If he hadn’t gone there, then the world would probably never have heard of this incredible but terrifying story.
