Superstition

My father's sister was an alcoholic. Her mother
believed that when a member of a family died,
he could take a curse with him. So when my uncle Marcel
died, she prayed that he would take her daughter's
alcoholism with him. Shortly thereafter her daughter
stopped drinking, and she attributes this to her wish.
