Knocking over my dead sister's casket
By lvealey017 Story ID: 79
My sister recently died at the age of 32. She was the lovliest person and its all a very sad story.
We were very close.
Her funeral was held at the Lutheran church she was married in. Right before they started the service (after the viewing), I went to give my sister a kiss one last time.
When I went to stand up, I tripped over the altar they put out to kneel on. Falling forward, I put my hands out to brace myself which happen to be on the inside of the casket, on the ledge next to the hinge of the lid. It pushed the casket backwards and bang! - down on the floor!
Luckily, no major harm was done. The men put it back upright, fixed her hair, and placed her gifts next to her again. I swear if she were here, she would laugh so loudly.
My mom was so upset she was hysterical, and my step dad held back a chuckle. This is the story of my life.
