Remember “Zoltar” from the movie “Big”? When Josh wished to be big (and it came true) – well I was on vacation in California, walking down the Huntington Beach pier when we came up this Zoltar…now it gets really weird. Watch what happens.

So what’s so weird about this? I had just flown out to SoCal to celebrate my Uncle’s 81st birthday (and 60th wedding anniversary) – while reuniting with family members I had seen in over 30 years – you can imagine my reaction when we read this “A happy reunion with a loved one will make life all that you ever wanted it or dreamed it to be”).

So am I just looking for a reason to believe? Ryan will tell you that I’m not easily swayed by things like haunted houses, ghost stories, UFO’s or ouija boards. But for whatever reason this really rattled me.

Since we’re talking about ouija boards – remember this story about the Grandma and the Ouija Board she left after she passed?

The viral image depicted the insides of a greeting card that consisted of the late grandmother’s rocking picture, in which she was seen taking her tongue out and pulling up her middle fingers much like a rockstar. Besides the image was a message saying, “Let’s keep in touch!” as a cut-out of a Ouija Board was attached to the other panel of the card, signalling her wish to contact the living even after her death.

While some might find this offensive, those who knew her claimed that this was just how she was – fun, witty and always up for a good laugh. It seems like she wanted her funeral to be nothing less than a joyous celebration, and we think she definitely succeeded!

This hilarious story has since gone viral, with people all over the world sharing it on social media. Many have even claimed that they would want something similar at their own funerals. After all, if you can’t have a good laugh at your own funeral, then when can you?

This grandma’s funeral is definitely one that we won’t be forgetting anytime soon! Her quirky sense of humor and light-hearted approach to death is something that we could all learn from. So next time you’re feeling down about attending a funeral, just remember that it could be worse – you could be sitting through a boring one!
