    My brother was at a funeral yesterday for an aunt of his wife.

    Brother knows the undertaker very well.

    He asks the undertaker why was the vault not in the grave.

    Well, there is a skunk that fell in the hole yesterday and we can't get it out.

    They had put a plank in the hole hoping Mr. skunk would walk up it and get out.

    Skunk has sprayed in hole.

    After the funeral service in the church, graveside service is just outside the church....but not by the grave.

    Finish that, everyone goes into the church for lunch.

    Brother hears a "pop" from outside.

    He asked the undertaker later what happened.

    Undertaker says we had a "double funeral".

    Skunk in hole....vault.....casket in vault.

    I told my brother, "Gads, now I've heard everything."

    Why not dig another hole somewhere else in the cemetery so the family could have an unspoiled graveside service, then back fill the offending grave site?

    When my brother was telling me this story, I just couldn't believe it. Her gravesite is in the family plot and she was buried right next to her husband who had passed about 10 years earlier.
    Had it been a member of my family, I don't think I would have been happy with how it was done.

    Somehow it seems . . . . not right. Just not right to bury the aunt in a hole a skunk has sprayed, and on top of a dead skunk. However I don't really see moving the whole thing to another grave if this grave was in a family plot. I guess the least the undertaker could do is remove the dead skunk -- sounds like "double funeral" means the skunk was still in the hole and possibly under the vault??

    If that is a true story, the family has a pretty good legal case against the funeral home.

    I can see a graveside ceremony with everyone gagging and retching.

    At least you wouldn't have to worry about a long winded preacher.
