Darth Vader Leads Funeral Procession For Grandmother

56-year old Halloween loving and "tarot-card-carrying 'White Witch'" grandmother Lorna Johnson passed away due to lung cancer last month, and was recently laid to rest with Darth Vader leading her funeral procession. What appears to be a very hungover Beetlejuice also attended the service. It's what she would have wanted.

"My mum's favourite time of year was Halloween," son Neil Johnson told the Guardian. She 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."

She sounds like she was a fun lady. Celebrating a life instead of mourning a death -- that's what more funerals should be like. Honestly, I have only been to a single funeral in my entire life because I don't deal well with death plus I accidentally brought the body back to life at that one because I'd been screwing around with dark magic. That was a whole big thing and some of my family still doesn't talk to me. Rest in peace, Lorna.

Keep going for several more shots.

    That hearse is weird.

    Personally I don't want to be buried. I want my corpse dropped into a burlap sack and flung into the woods by a catapult or tebuchet. No embalming... Just bag and toss.

    meh, bit disrespectful. you care so much about this stiff, but the 'cheap' version of the costume is the best you can do? go for the top of the line and then just sell it after the funeral if you're really worried about breaking the bank ... seems like a pretty big thing to be CHEAP on, really doesn't show much love for the dead at all ...

    Either an idiot troll or an entitled asshole. Either way, not worth the time arguing people.

    Or maybe they did the best they could with what they had. Don't be such a judgemental douche.

  • acedick72

    again, 'the best'? not really. a funeral is expensive. any funeral that's doing a procession isn't being done for $0. they could easy find the money for a one time purchase of a way better outfit and then sell it. they'd probably get extra cash if they go for the "only worn once for a funeral tribute" thing.

    There are lots of ways you can live life, and it seems this lady got it right. RIP, ma'am.
