What the proprietress said is very important. What do you think she meant?
For a voice actress, I imagine her as being voiced by Siobhan Flynn.

About the mirror and reflection bit; it was mentioned to me that mirrors used to be made with polished silver and that was why they wouldn't have a reflection. Silver is regarded as a divine metal by multiple cultures (more so than gold. gold is associated more with currency than anything else)and was actually used in multiple remedies and cures. Have you ever noticed how most christian relics and crucifixes and the like are made with silver or silver alloy? Sometimes, priests would sprinkle silver dust in water when they blessed it.

Theories and revelations
What I believe she meant was that even though she made the attempt to turn her husband into a vampire, the process didn't work and instead of becoming one of the undead, he simply shuffled off his mortal coil.

A further theory is that either she was unskilled in the process, not powerful enough of a vampire, or at some time during the process of being turned he lost his will to continue on with his life. Perhaps during the time when his coffin was being lowered into the ground, instead of showing that he wanted to live, he simply accepted it, and allowed the last of his life fade away, in essence dying for the one he loved the most.

Completely off topic...
Aside from the fact that silver was considered to be holy or divine, other metals or even woods were considered to be just as potent and powerful. For example, ash (I believe) was considered to be divine, and as such was what you were supposed to make the stakes out of in order to pierce a vampire's heart, while silver was the metal that would destroy nearly all "monsters" once it pierced their bodies.

@doody_machine: I'm pretty sure silver is an anti-bacterial. Not sure about the wood...
