Spokane man's cremated remains lost in mail
Then, after a lifetime of punctuality, the Spokane man missed his own funeral because the Postal Service mis-routed his cremated remains. Instead of an overnight trip across Washington, tracking records show the box went through Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Chicago -- one of the cities he most wanted to visit.

When the remains of the Air Force veteran finally arrived home they were buried in the state Veterans Cemetery near Medical Lake.
