UPI News Service, 04/30/2010 

A British widow said she has kept a life-size cardboard cutout of her husband since he died last year.

Maria Challis, 36, of Ness, England, said the cutout of her late husband, Paul, 38, was made for his funeral in July 2009 and she could not bring herself to throw it away after the service, the Daily Record reported Friday.

Challis said she keeps the cutout in the family home she shares with children Jack, 7, and Molly, 9.

"When you lose someone you love, you worry you'll forget them and this is our way of remembering Paul and keeping our precious memories of him alive," she said.

"He was due to go to a friend's wedding some weeks after he died. He didn't make it but his cutout did. Some people might raise eyebrows but who is anyone to say what is the right and wrong way to deal with grief?"
