funeral to be held as a wedding - never beautiful

OK, here's an embarrassing revelation: one of my favourite sources of entertainment these days is laptop bride. I never tire of the masthead with her in that shiny dress with the dead flowers and the creepy lace-o-rama veil. I don't know what this says about my sense of humour, but I think it's some fantastic stuff. Especially when it's far, far away.

But recently she posted some unfunny stuff with this title: Funeral to be held as a wedding -- beautiful. For those of you who are too terrified to view her blog based on my description above (and I imagine that's most of you), the ADD summary is that this 19-year old was dying of cancer in Australia and she met a 20-year old who was also dying of cancer. When the 19-year old took a turn for the worse, they got married in the hospital. Then she died.

OK, so far just a sad story, right? Take a deep breath.... the funeral is going to be held as the proper wedding ceremony she never had. She's going to be taken to her grave in her wedding dress, barefoot (since apparently she wanted to be married barefoot). And the
funeral wedding celebration will have six bridesmaids, six groomsmen and a dog carrying wedding rings. Is the dog going to chuck one of the rings into the ground with her?

I really don't know what to say other than thank god for all of this, because really, no woman should be buried without being properly married off. I think I will re-write my will now and leave proper instructions on how my
funeral wedding should go. Suggestions are welcome.



SunnyShine note: I'm speechless.


RainyBow note: .... because you're crying so hard from the emotion of this story. I know your mushy kind.


SunnyShine note: I dream of such a wedding. sniff sniff.

Perhaps you should wear something blue. You know, to match your lips.
