This short story might have been about teenagers or adults, and was written in the 1980's or 1990's. It could have been in a Charles de Lint anthology, as the genre was fantasy horror. I don't think it involved vampires, but resurrection was a central theme. The ending was not horrific, actually positive though a little ambiguous.

  • @SeanDuggan No, I'm not certain it was about teenagers actually. Tell me more, or better yet, write it as an answer please! Dec 16, 2014 at 20:03
