Guy Meets His Wife After Unknowingly Putting Flowers on a Murderer's Grave

By

A twitter thread from @SixthFormPoet has a lot of people not only cracking up, but believing in serendipity as well.

Dealing with the death of a loved one is tough and we humans have come up with many ways to cope with the loss. There are tons of different theories about what happens to us after we die, some more detailed than others. 

There are also a slew of rituals and traditions across cultures that have evolved over time, but they all pretty much focus on one thing: celebrating and honoring the individual who passed away. Wakes, congregational prayers, funerals, you name it. Some people bury their dead and erect monuments in their memory; others put them on a raft and shoot a flaming arrow at it and watch it burn as it drifts along the water.

I'm not saying one is better than the other, but there's clearly a disparity of awesomeness between the two.

@SixthFormPoet's family went the monument and gravestone route when his father passed away. Although death isn't the funniest of set-ups for a story, it turns out his is simultaneously hilarious, gruesome, and very, very sweet.

SFP was really close to his dad, so he made it a habit of visiting his grave often. As it turns out, it was somewhat of a tradition in his family and one that they prided themselves on maintaining.
