The idea that she might have been never crossed my mind, I must say. Having said that, it is still interesting to speculate. It is even interesting to consider - not that she had been but *what if she had been*....? I also think that somewhere, somehow there must have been some other tie-in between Pascow and the cemetary - not just between him and Louis ... and I wonder what...
The time Louis asked Jud if somebody buried a person there and he (disgustingly) said no, but his eyes were lying, I first thought that it was going to be revealed that Norma had been buried there. Even though that was never confirmed, I wouldn't be surprised a bit if she really was.
I also pondered this as I was reading Pet Sematary recently. I dismissed it only because Norma was never described as having a smell, you know, that smell. All of the resurrected, uh, things had a horrible, strong smell.
The whole second half of this book is one of the creepiest, discomforting, yet riveting pieces of fiction I've ever read. One man's descent into absolute madness! The Gage-Thing will stick with me for a long, long time.
Speaking of the Crandall's, did Jud kill Church? Maybe I missed something, but it wasn't quite clear to me whether he did or not. I got the sense that King was hinting that he did.
I have never thought about this possibility... and I have read the book more than once, but the thought never occurred to me. I honestly do not think she was buried there... But if it comes out she was, I will be shocked.
It is an excellent observation of your imagination, but I believe that is as far as this theory goes. Stephen King usually doesn't leave room for speculation instead he ropes you in and gives you more than you want to handle
