RIALTO, Calif., Oct. 26 (UPI) -- A California woman says she is turning the charred home where her two young sons died in a fire into a Halloween haunted house as a tribute to the boys.

Viviana Delgado, 27, said the Rialto, Calif., home will be both a haunted house, complete with flashing lights and creepy decorations, and a memorial for her sons Mario Cisneros, 5, and, David, 3, with their toys and pictures mixed in with the Halloween items, The Sub, San Bernardino, Calif., reported Monday.

"This is the way I'm coping with the loss of my two kids," said Delgado, whose sons died in a fire at the home May 29. "It's my way of saying happy Halloween to my kids."

However, some neighbors have expressed concerns about Delgado's decorations, especially the pair of tombstones in the front yard representing the young boys.

"It's not cool," Harry Cass, 49, said of the haunted house. "I disagree with it."

Delgado said the haunted house will be open for the next two weekends for an admission price of $3.
