Eliza and her father shared a unique and unbreakable bond. The two always felt blessed to have each other and spending time together was a simple pleasure they enjoyed most. He was an amazing father and the one she would think of first when she needed strength and support.
Being the biggest role model to Eliza, she saw no problem in her father’s way of life and adopted his favorite adage “happy tummy, happy family”. So, even as she grew up to become as big as him, she was never too worried about it.
Not until his health took a turn for the worse and he departed rather suddenly, leaving a great void that will never be filled. But there was also a bigger problem awaiting Eliza.
When the day came to bid her father a last goodbye, the unthinkable happened. The burial plot turned out too small for the oversized casket carrying her father’s 351 lb remains. Shockingly, pallbearers had to lay her father to rest not once but 3 TIMES over!
