    The Ex-Girlfriend Of The Deceased Made An Odd Request

    From Redditor /u/Alrac15:

    My friend's ex-girlfriend made her own prayer cards of a picture of him and her (instead of the ones his mom made of just him) and passed them around. She also stood in front of the coffin and took pictures of him, rubbed his face so hard his makeup started coming off, and asked his dad for his sperm.

    An Ex-Wife Flipped Her Car Trying To Speed Past The Procession

    From Redditor /u/killingcrushes:

    A guy at my dad's church killed himself a few months back and the whole funeral was a mess. This guy was married and had two kids under the age of ten with his current wife, but had two teenage daughters with an ex-wife. The ex wife showed up at the funeral, kept harassing the wife and young kids, tried to steal the body, followed the funeral procession to the graveyard but flipped her car trying to speed up and get to the graveyard first, then got p*ssed off that they didn't wait for her to get everything squared away with her wrecked car to have the burial and reception. It was a…bit of a mess.
