It is tragic for the soul to be apprehensive of the future and wretched in anticipation of wretchedness, consumed with an anxious desire that the objects which give pleasure may remain in its possession to the very end. For such a soul will never be at rest; in waiting for the future it will lose the present blessings which it might enjoy. And there is no difference between grief for something lost and the fear of losing it.
I would have SUCH a hard time burrying him in fear he would wake up again. God what if he has liek an extremely rare diesease were it says he is "dead" but actually alive ? I saw this on a episode of house...
I've actually read about cases where people have been drugged to an extent where they show now vital signs, even upon being examined by medical doctors. Their heart rate slows to the point where it cannot be detected, but they are still alive. Perhaps this kid had been drugged or had eaten something that paralyzed his body to the point where he was pronounced dead.
If the kids really did sit up and talk - these stupid ass parents shouldn't have buried him. They should have kept him until his body started rotting, so at least they know he would have been truly dead. What if they kept him for a month and he never decomposed? Obviously he would be alive still. Now he surely is dead because they buried his ass.
