Grandma's ashes given to Goodwill by mistakeThe staff at a Goodwill store in Fenton, Mich., are trying to find the person who donated an urn containing grandma’s ashes.

He suspects the ashes were donated inadvertently as “part of a house clean-out.”

The marriage of the former First Daughter, 31, to investment banker Marc Mezvinsky ran into trouble after just a few months, with Mezvinsky quitting his job to ski in Wyoming and leaving Chelsea behind in New York. In desperation, Clinton turned to trainer Simone Ayesa, who teaches fitness, yoga, and tantric-sex techniques to A-list celebrities. “After just a few sessions, Simone was able to get Chelsea and Marc to relax,” says a source. “It was nothing short of a small miracle.”
