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.
