Woman Takes Dad's Ashes To Bank To Prove Death

"A British woman who took her father`s ashes to a bank said she wanted to prove his death and stop the debt collection letters.


Siobhan Peers, 31, of Stockport, England, said her father, David, died of bone cancer at the age of 67 in October 2011, but she has since received about 20 letters from the Royal Bank of Scotland seeking to collect on a $9.17 overdraft debt."
