Over Smith’s dead body

Rev. Smith announced today that the only way he will be attending his own funeral is “over my dead body”. An outraged Smith made it clear that, so long as he has a breath of life left in him, he will take whatever measures are necessary to avoid attending his own funerary services. “Some people might fancy the idea of attending their own burial or memorial service, but not me,” said Smith, “No way. I’ll die before I let that happen.”
