Kathy Wilson arranges angels on the marker at the cemetery in Andrews, NC. She had to pay to have her husband Jim's body exhumed because the medical examiner made the wrong ruling in his death. An autopsy showed James Wilson died of injuries sustained in a car wreck -- not of a heart attack. The distinction was important because his insurance policies didn't pay in case of a natural death. Her daughter Jenny is also buried in this spot, she passed away months after her step father. JEFF WILLHELM - jwillhelm@charlotteobserver.com
