CROZET, VA (WVIR)– After a trip to the hospital, one Crozet, Virginia woman received some shocking news in the mail: she was dead, at least according to the nice note she received from a chaplain at Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital.
The news of 62-year-old Marilyn Mullins’ death came as a huge shock because she’s not actually dead. Almost a month and a half after the three-day stay at Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital, she received the very nice, but very troubling, card from a chaplain there.
The card read “In the weeks since Mrs. Mullins death, we at Martha Jefferson have remembered her and your family. May you continue to find comfort in one another’s presence. May the sharing of warm memories strengthen your most treasured ties to her.
Most people who first hear what happened might chuckle a bit; even Mullins saw the humor when she read the card.
The laughter faded once she realized the gravity of the situation. She relies on Social Security and disability checks.
“I didn’t know how it was going to affect me with my income, Social Security, things like that,” she said.
She said she realized it was probably an innocent mistake, but one she wanted corrected so she called the hospital.
“I was put through to someone and while I was talking to her, there was a maintenance call coming through…and some doors that didn’t work…and you know, frankly, I didn’t know if I had someone in maintenance.”
