When airlines double-book seats, customers get irritated. When a cemetery double-sells gravesites, people come unglued. That’s what has played out in Post Falls since the city-run Evergreen Cemetery discovered last summer that three plots reserved by one family in 2008 were sold again and used for two burials. That came as a quite a shock to Jeannette DeHart, the Post Falls woman who held the original deed to the plots, as she prepared to bury her husband there last summer. “I thought this was one thing I did right, to get the plots ahead of time,” DeHart said. “I wanted to keep the family all in a row.” The mistake was due to poor recordkeeping by a former employee/Scott Maben, SR.

Question: What would you do if you found yourself in Jeannette DeHart's situation?
