A friend's funeral on Monday. It was a beautiful non-denominational service, with just the right mix of laughter and tears.
The killer though?
At the front of the hall there was the casket, which I couldn't see very well from where I was sitting. In front of it was something bulky and weirdly shaped, covered in white sheets.
As the time came for the casket to leave, a couple of men stripped off the sheets to reveal my friend's motorised scooter/mobility aid, and one of them proceeded to tow the casket out using the scooter. To top that, the casket was painted like a caravan, and it departed to his favourite travel music, 'On the road again'.
The whole congregation just lost it laughing through their tears. It was absolutely brilliant, and was Friend down to the ground. He'd have loved it.
