“In lieu of flowers, bring beer. Preferably Canadian.”
This is a quote from an obituary from the Prince George Citizen, my home town newspaper. I knew this guy’s son, who probably was the one who wrote the obit. Prince George breeds classy folks. Or at least practical folks. Might as well enjoy a cold one and swap lies about the deceased. My kind of funeral.
