I have mixed feelings about this. This seems like you would never have any sort of closure about your deceased loved one. On the other hand, I am a mother to a 3 year old and I have no idea what lengths I would go to just to see her or feel her presence again. I can't imagine my life without my daughter. This is sad and heartbreaking. If these brings this woman some peace and joy even for a brief moment. I am happy for her.
