Turning Grief Into Laughter
We realize that losing a loved one isn’t easy, and it’s not a subject to make fun of. But when we saw the story of the man who custom ordered a coffin and then had a party to celebrate, we realized that sometimes the best way to face mortality is by having a bit of fun.
You remember that old joke about loving something so much you should go ahead and marry it? Well, what if you went ahead and were buried in it? Bill Bramanti is doing just that—he ordered a coffin decorated in the style of a Pabst Blue Ribbon can, his favorite beer. Then he had a party and filled the coffin with ice and his beloved brew. The 67 year old doesn’t think he’ll need the coffin for its intended purpose anytime soon—and his story is a good reminder that life is meant for celebrating and death isn’t to be feared. [MSN]
