Making a Connection With the Dead

"A German inventor has come up with a novel way for relatives coping with the grief of losing a loved one to convey their feelings to the departed. The 'Phone Angel,' a long-life battery powered cell phone device, allows those in mourning to have contact with the deceased when personal pain, distance or disability prevents them from attending the final resting place..."

Why didn't I think of that? A phone you place inside the coffin so you can call your loved one? I wonder how you'd feel when it's your end of the phone that's ringing.
