Everyone has there favorite restaurant, the main reason being the food however some people have experienced life changing events that took place in a restaurant. Just like Ruby did in the diner she worked at. She chose it as her heaven because it was when her husband was alive and well and they were happy and in their courtship, it was where she met the love of her life. To Eddie the diner was just a place where he and his father ate breakfast. This shows how the significance of certain places differs from person to person.
The Rock and Washing Ritual
For the most part people love weddings, it's a time where people can stand in front of their family and announce their love and devotion which is why Ruby chose them as her heaven. On the other hand, Eddie was never fond of weddings and rarely attended them because in his opinion, they were full of embarrassing moments, for example he could never dance because of his bad leg. This proves how even in a marriage where both people have experienced the same significant event, it can still be more meaning to one than the other.
