A strange memorial service was held at St. Mary’s University in Twickenham, England one chilly Friday night. Friends gathered in the hallway of their dorm and paid tribute to their friend, Adam Milner. They scattered his favorite items around his photograph, framed in tea lights. His favorite green hat, his game controller, his favorite cigarettes…anything that reminded them of his memory was displayed…He had fallen, taken much too soon by something so tragic: a relationship. They gave speeches, and following that came a chorus of “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You,” in order to move on, having drinks in Milner’s honor.The guys didn’t allow Milner to attend, but insisted that he stay away. People expected that he would be out with his girlfriend that Friday night, but they were wrong! He was alone in his dormroom, but the guys banned him from his own ceremony saying that it just wouldn’t be right for him to attend. They were in mourning, after all!
Once it was over, Milner promised to look over all of them from above, thanking them for the beautiful ceremony (that he could probably hear from his room) and they all had a good laugh.
After all, what are friends for?
