Question by Ms. Minerva: Did you ever know anyone you suspected of “foul play”?
One of my grandmother’s relatives was the nicest old lady who had been married to the meanest old git in the world. They lived in a little town about a hundred miles away and hardly anyone in the town liked that mean old man who had insulted just about everyone in the little town…and never went to church.
My grandmother’s relative, on the other hand, was dearly loved by one & all….went to church, did good works.
Well, the old man developed some sort of mystery malady….got sicker and sicker….and, finally, died at home. His wife had her best friend’s husband, the local doctor, come out to the house and “write it up”….then they had him cremated pretty quickly.
Most people who knew them thought “good riddance”. I overheard talk about it when I was a little girl….and everyone pretty much assumed that arsenic had been my grandmother’s relative’s solution to her “problem”.
Have you ever suspected that someone you knew or was related to you had “done someone in”?

No, but what you just shared sounds like the game Clue. My pastor once shared a story with a group of us about one of his uncles. A day after they’d buried him his aunt told someone how she thought she’d seen this uncle’s face twitch. So that same day they unearthed the coffin and when they’d opened it up there were scratch marks on the inside of the coffin lid. He was dead of course.
