A group of friends in the United Kingdom, decided to officially mourn the loss of their friend who gave up his social life with them for a woman he loves.
The Prince FC football team of Treorchy, Wales, invited the man for one last night out with them.
20-year-old Keiran Cable, who is in a relationship with Jess Ferguson, 19, agreed, but he did not expect to attend his own funeral. 50 friends showed up to the surprise funeral party.
The group set up a mock funeral ceremony, including a coffin, which was built by one of the members of the football team, leaflets, a hearse, a vicar and hymns.
A friend said that in the months since Cable had been in a relationship, it felt like he had died because none of his friends had seen him and he wasn’t replying to any of their group texts or emails.
The pranksters printed 50 Order of Service leaflets, labeled “In Loving Memory of Keiran Cable.”
It read: “Thoughts are with friends of Cable at this dark time. However, they shouldn’t grieve for him, but wish him luck as he continues on in his next life.
“Keiran has had a tough 18 months trying to keep his friendship with his friends alive, but sadly, the wait is now over and he has floated up to the gates of heaven.
“What hurts the most is that we were starved of precious time to say our last goodbyes after his relationship status was changed from ‘Single’ to ‘in a Relationship.’
“It’s now time for us to finally say our last goodbyes by raising a glass for our friend Keiran.”
Cable took the surprise funeral parry in good spirit and they all had a good time.
