Florida Woman Remains Very Much Alive
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with condolences to Mabel Toevs on her own death. Normally, you'd send condolences to the family of the deceased, but she didn't get the message in person. She's 95, a resident of Florida, and she opened her mail to receive a notice from her prescription drug company noting the sad occasion of her death. Now she loses Medicare benefits unless she is able to prove that she is alive. For now, she does say that she feels uncommonly well for a dead person.
It's MORNING EDITION.
