One way to make sure no one forgets you when you’re gone is to give them a way to contact you.
Since you can’t take cell phones into the afterlife (yet), you’ll just have to go about it the old-fashioned way. That’s right, you’ll have to do it via a Ouija board.
At least, that’s the prank one deceased Texas grandmother played on her loved ones, as everyone who attended her funeral received hand-crafted Ouija board cards, courtesy of the grandmother herself.
Jodie Perryman, 81, died on Oct. 12 after a battle with cancer. Granddaughter Gracie Perryman, 20, shared what was left behind with Today.
It wasn’t just a card with a Ouija board, either. It also featured a photo of Jodie raising her middle finger while making a goofy face, and the message, “Let’s keep in touch.”
Gracie Perryman said that was just who her grandma was.
“It was hysterical,” she said, via Today. “And everybody was like, of course, that’s so Jodie of her.”
Jodie Perryman, who spent most of her life working in the retail industry, was always witty, Gracie added.
“She was hilarious; had a great sense of humor and a huge heart,” Gracie said. “She loved her family. And she just took care of people around her. She was a great woman.”
As for the Ouija board cards, well, it was indeed a gag.
“It’s just paper,” Gracie said, laughing. “We tried but to no avail.”
