Widow uses cardboard cutout to keep his memory alive

A British woman has a novel way to deal with the grief of losing her husband to inoperable brain tumors in July 2009 at age 38.

The grieving widow has kept the memory of her dead husband alive for their two children - by creating a life-sized cardboard cut-out to keep in the family home.

The 6ft 1in cardboard cut-out of Paul stands in the family home he once shared with them.

The cut-out even made an appearance at his own funeral and attended his best friend's wedding weeks after his death.

The children have even dressed him up in a Santa outfit at Christmas and as Dracula on Halloween.
