NATOCK, Mass. (AP) _ Vonree Nelson knows his wife isn’t dead. How? He says she’s been cooking his dinner every night.

Earlier this week, Nelson received a letter from the Department of Veterans Affairs informing him of his wife’s demise. It was a surprise to Mrs. Nelson, too.

Addie Nelson called the bureaucrats to let them know she’s alive and well. The 80-year-old says she’s not ready to go just yet. Officials say apparently another Addie Nelson, who also lived in Natick, Massachusetts, died, giving rise to the confusion.
