Worst Christmas Ever

The day after Christmas, a 45 year old man decided to plan a surprise visit to his mother. The man loaded up his wife and four kids and drove into town from California. His 77 year old mother had no idea he was coming and would surely be surprised to see her son and grand kids.

After the long drive, he walked up the driveway to mom's house and knocked on the front door. The anticipation of the surprise was building and he couldn't wait to see the look on her face. After his unanswered knocks the family walked around to the backyard of the house to try the rear door. His wife looked in the large window and saw the sitting in a chair bent forward with her head on her knees. She wasn't moving.

"Kids -get back in the car: Now!"

The man and his wife went inside to find her dead in her sitting chair. She was wearing only a pair of underwear. Lividity (settling of blood near the skin) had set in making her face, hands, and feet a dark bluish color.

Nobody likes to see a dead body close up but imagine the shock of finding your mother this way.
Obviously, the family was terribly upset and distraught over their holiday 'surprise'.
