Death is usually a sombre occasion where we grieve over a loved one.
One loving widow from the United States, who recently lost her husband, however, chose to celebrate his life by describing him in a humorous obituary.
Good News Network
reported that Crystal and Eric Sauser were married for 13 years, and Eric died last month after battling cancer for two years.
Knowing that her husband's quirky sense of humour, Crystal penned down a fitting obituary for him.
“His departure was just in time for him to make his spiritual appearance at every Red Sox spring game. If you knew Eric, you knew you were loved, and there is a good chance he told you that—probably sober, but maybe not.
“Eric loved, in this order: his smoking hot wife, his brilliant kids and family, his many friends, the Boston Red Sox, the Kansas City Chiefs (before being a Chiefs fan was cool), the Huskers, Liverpool Futbol, QT iced tea, Adidas sneakers, fishing, backpacking, hiking, hunting, and any old Chevy he saw on the road.”
She also wrote that Eric is preceded in death by billions, including “his dog Harvey who most of us loved to hate”.
The winning line in the obituary would have to be this one.
Crystal said that “the cause of death was either leukaemia or more likely being dead sexy”.
To invite people to the memorial service, she wittily wrote: “Admission is free to all who attend this once in a lifetime show for the greatest man on earth. Following the Service, the family requests jamming out to Ozzy Osborne and raising a cold beer (preferably Busch Light) in celebration of Eric’s life.
“In lieu of flowers, please pray that the Huskers have a winning season.”
The way Crystal captured Eric’s life quickly went viral after the obituary was published online.
Netizens were mostly appreciative of the way Crystal saw the humourous side of her husband’s life and highlighted it to everyone.
“He would be happy that this story is generating inspiration and love. If there’s anything Eric and I can do, it’s send some love out there,” she told Good Morning America as quoted in the report.
