they did have one, there would have been a really interesting

Lazarus who had two sisters. He died and was buried in a tomb.
But then, they would have said that after he was dead and buried,
he was brought back to life by Jesus! He came out of the tomb and
rejoined his family. Wouldn't that have been an exciting
obituary? (Let them answer.)
