Some people do a lot to ensure their happiness after death. Ada Smith of Pink Hill kept having dreams that her dead husband was cold and wet in his grave, so she built a house over his grave. Upon her death, Ada, too, was buried under the home. Ben Freeze of Rowan County feared getting wet when he died. He built a mausoleum and then was buried not in a coffin, but on a mattress. Freeze believed that death would be much like sleep; therefore, he took measures to ensure a dry and comfortable sleep.
