Cremated man's ashes make crash landing in woman's attic
September 2, 2004 ASHES0903
FOREST GROVE, Ore. -- An unwelcome guest recently crashed into Barbara Vreeland's home: the cremated remains of a Washington man.
The 46-year-old man died of natural causes in June. He wanted to be cremated and have his ashes scattered over Mountain View Memorial Gardens, a cemetery near Vreeland's home, Forest Grove police Capt. Aaron Ashbaugh said Tuesday.
Family members told police the bag of ashes slipped as they were circling the cemetery in a small plane they had hired for the day.
The 4-pound bag crashed through Vreeland's roof and landed in the attic.
``It really rattled our place,'' said Vreeland, who was at her kitchen sink when the ashes hit the roof. ``It wasn't a little bump - it shook the house.''
Vreeland's roof is being fixed and the man's family is paying for the damage.
``I understand the man wanted to be with his (deceased) relatives,'' Vreeland said.
``I feel for those people. But I think some of their relative is still in our attic.''
