Family and friends of a 56-year-old grandmother, who died from cancer, have attended a Halloween-themed funeral at Luton (UK). Among the 100 mourners, who came to celebrate her life, some were dressed up as Witches, Beetlejuice, the Tasmanian Devil and even Darth Vader!

Johnson’s son, Neil, said: “We’ve added an extra little personal touch to the funeral, it’s helped a lot.”

“My mum’s always said you need to celebrate, you need to have a party. So we’re not going to sit around feeling sorry for ourselves. My mum wouldn’t want that.”, Neil also said.

“My mum’s favourite time of year was Halloween. We always had parties, dressed up, decorated the house. The kids loved it, we loved it. It was something we always did”

It was surely a great idea to personalise the funeral as much as possible to make it absolutely unique.

Madison Ashby - August 9, 2017

These six people had funerals on their mind for one reason or another and decided to share with the Twitter world what they were thinking, and I’m pretty glad they did. People can come up with some pretty crazy things if you let them ramble.
