Note to self shoes are cement for a reason….

I think whoopsie is about all you can say about this story

Daniel Scott Lasky’s wish was to be buried at sea.

So when the 48-year-old died this month of Lou Gehrig’s disease, his family followed his request. They put his body on dry ice, brought it to South Florida, chartered a boat, said their goodbyes and released him to the sea, according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

Except a day later, Lasky’s body floated to the surface.

A local fisherman spotted it Saturday about 4 ½ miles offshore near Port Everglades, the BSO said.

He called for help, setting in motion an investigation into who was the person and how did he end up in the Atlantic Ocean.

I shouldn’t be too harsh because I could easily see my funeral turning out something like this if it follows the pattern I set in life…..

The day after his death, his family began the drive south, stopping overnight in Daytona Beach before arriving in Fort Lauderdale on Friday.

That day, Sharon Lasky, his pastor and a few other family members boarded the Mary B III, along with the boat’s captain, crew and Daniel Lasky’s body, according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

Is it just me or is this whole sordid affair starting to sound a little too much like an updated version of “As I Lay Dying” …. and when you add the next important line

After their goodbyes, they went fishing in his honor and returned to shore.

And this becomes the most redneck thing I’ve ever heard in my entire life ….. did they use his fingers as bait …..

Meh you get through it how you can I guess … “whatever floats your boat” as it were (bah dun dun) ….

At least the fact that these ppl’s lack of thinking that you might need to weight the body down causing them to pull an unintentional “Pet Cemetery” can make us all feel a lot better about awkward or embarrassing things we’ve done at family gatherings because this one pretty much takes the cake.
