The body that floated up near Port Everglades over the weekend belonged to a man whose family attempted to bury him at sea, the Broward Sheriff's Office said Tuesday. Before losing his battle with Lou Gehrig's disease on Sept. 8, 48-year-old Daniel Lasky's dying wish was to be drift out to sea, to be buried in the ocean he loved so much.
So his family wrapped up his body and traveled to South Florida from North Carolina to fulfill their relative's request.
They thought they did when several family members, including his wife, lowered Lasky's body overboard after a ceremony off of Fort Lauderdale Beach on Sept. 10. But Lasky's body wasn't quite ready to swim with the fishes, and it re-surfaced the next day and was spotted by a startled fisherman who called the authorities. It's unclear what will happen to the body now or if the family will be allowed to give the watery funeral a second try.
We might suggest dry land.
“Hey, Mom! Dad’s home.”
Known to his friends as “Bob”...
Must have taken the body out to sea on the Fail Boat. Just damn.
Maybe they should put some dead weight in with him. Then again, I guess they did.
He coulda drowned!
Could these facts support a commercial motion picture?
Shoulda’ consulted w/ Dexter!
Hey, Mom! Dads home.
“Well, tell him to wash up before dinner...”
LMAO! Well played you two.
AH sir, just one more question. It says in my notes, let me see here, you said your father was dead when you put him into the water. Is that right sir?
It appears that the ocean didn't love him so much.
Way back when was in high school there was a cartton in Playboy by Gahan Wilson. A cop is talking to some old lady about the dead guy in the trash can. The cop says something like, “you’re not getting rid of him that easy Mrs Greenberg’ It’s over a 1000 miles from NC to Miami, I wonder if dad got shotgun.
“He brought prawns!”
I said those very words a couple of weeks ago when someone was on his twentieth vacation this year at Cape Cod.
