Funerals are usually sad affairs that include lots of tears and grief. But one grandma from Breckenridge, Texas, decided she wanted her family and friends to have a few laughs at her funeral as well. And she managed to achieve that in the most genius way possible.
Knowing her time was getting near, Jodie Marie Perryman made arrangements that everyone who attended her funeral receives a special gift: an Ouija board. This way, if they missed her, they could contact her.
The photo of the gift was shared by Perryman’s granddaughter Gracie on Twitter and quickly became viral for both the idea behind it and the execution. Besides the Ouija board, the funny grandma also added the message “Let’s stay in touch” and a goofy photo of herself holding up two middle fingers.
As it turns out, these kinds of pranks were nothing new for Perryman. In a recent chat with Today, Gracie said that her grandmother always had a great sense of humor.
“She was hilarious. She had a great sense of humor and a huge heart,” Gracie said. “She loved her family. And she just took care of people around her. She was a great woman.”
Of course, Gracie tried to contact her grandma through the Ouija board but didn’t get a response. Yet …
“It’s just paper,” she concluded. “We tried but to no avail.”
