a green dress funeral 3 A true friend. (5 photos)

This is the funeral of Private Kevin Elliott who was killed during a battle with the Taliban in Afghanistan. The ceremony was held in Dundee, Scotland. His best friend Barry Delaney wore a green dress to honor a long time agreement that if one of them dies, the other has to wear a bright green dress to the funeral.
Barry said:

“Kev was like my brother – we would have done anything for each other.
We said that whoever died first, the other one had to wear a pink dress with green spots to the funeral – and we shook on it. It was mainly his idea and the more I think about it, I’m sure Kevin knew something was going to happen.
I looked for the exact dress but couldn’t find one anywhere.
I eventually picked up the green one in Primark and bought the pink pop socks to make it look even sillier. It’s what Kev would have wanted.
Kev told his whole family about the pact, so I couldn’t back out. I had a word with him at the graveside and asked if he liked the color – I’m sure I could hear laughter coming out of the ground.
Kev was a true hero and someone I’m proud to call my best mate.”

    Chris? Normally I try to be reasonable and levelheaded, but you’ve broken me.
    Learn the difference between friendship/honoring promises and homosexuality, you impossible fucking douchebag.
    Pardon my french, everyone but Chris. He can just deal with it.

    Chris.. You should have your own segment called: I’m a real Douchbag, and a closet Homo myself..

    Chris… From your picture, you clearly don’t have a woman, and if you do, she’s got to be blind.. Your the ugliest thing I’ve ever seen.. matches your personality though.. Go home and play with Handgela more, because you know your a jerk-off.. Hope you get aids…
