Billy Ray and Linda Lee were married for many years.
Whenever there was a confrontation, yelling could be heard deep into the night. Billy Ray would shout, “When I die, I’ll dig my way up and out of the grave and come back and haunt you for the rest of your life ol’ woman!!”
Neighbors feared him. Old Billy Ray liked the fact that he was feared.
He died at the ripe old age of 98.
After the burial, Linda Lee’s neighbors, concerned for her safety, asked, “Aren’t you afraid that he may indeed be able to dig his way out of the grave and haunt you for the rest of your life?”
She replied, “LET HIM DIG. I HAD HIM BURIED UPSIDE DOWN…AND I KNOW HE WON’T ASK FOR DIRECTIONS.”
