Attending a Funeral

Some people just hate attending funerals; other consider it an obligation and never miss one.  In Brazil, Ademir Jorge Goncalves was happy to attend this funeral–it was his, but he was very much alive.

His family misidentified a body as Goncalves’ and proceeded with the funeral the following day.  Goncalves spent the night at a truck stop with friends and didn’t hear about his funeral until it was already in progress.  He rushed to the funeral to let his family know that he wasn’t dead.
