Smoking killed me

You heard me correct, Smoking Killed Me. Those were the final words and wishes of one Albert Whittamore who passed away from emphysema.

The displaying of signs in his hearse and at his graveside were by his final wish as he lay on his deathbed. He wanted to send a message to all smokers.

“He specified that’s what he wanted in his will.

We gave it some thought but after a while we decided that’s what he had requested.”

This was the comment of funeral director Paul Sullivan. The signs were displayed in the windows during the entire drive through Dover.


  1. interesting saying . . thats an eye opener.. do you have anymore of those phrases?

    • Oh Alice. Clever-ish spam attempt there.

      Adding the link to a site that claims to provide "a wide choice of tobacco for you waterpipe / hubbly bubbly / hookah / shisha" on a post about the dangers of smoking was pretty novel, I'll grant you that.

      • HE LIVES! No ways. Howdy dude!

        Clever angle alice has.

      • HE LIVES! barely! Been playing huge admin catch-up since Friday after the trips away, and am struggling to get sorted for another jaunt tomorrow, so not doing much more than passing through here at the moment.

        Will give you a shout on the morrow re the Apple-Mini thing…

  2. Also trying to shuffle things for tuesday, think it would be fun!
