What could you do for the sake of your bestfriend? How could you even be true to him/her and all those memories and promises you made with each other? See this viral story of a ‘weird’ man wore dress in his bestfriend’s funeral that made millions of people cry.
As been stated in a report by Daily Liked Website, three years ago Delaney and his best friend, Kevin Elliot, made a pact that whoever died first, the other one would wear a bright dress to his funeral. Little did they know that the day would come sooner more than they thought. It was announced that Kevin’s military unit was being deployed to Afghanistan, and soon after, his family received the dreaded news – Private Elliott (24), from the Black Watch, was killed while on foot patrol in the Babaji District of Helmand province in Afghanistan. Berry did what any bro would do and honored the pledge he made to his friend.
“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.”
But it is on the day of the burial, Barry left the usual suit and tie aside and squeezed into a tight neon dress and pink socks, not even pausing to consider what others might think.
Lastly, as he knelt down at Kevin’s graveside to ask him if he liked the color of his dress, he broke down in tears realizing that his best friend was gone and that they couldn’t share a laugh about how inappropriate Barry looked in his dress. But even so, Barry said that his funeral attire was “What Kev would have wanted” and that his best bud died and gave his life as “a real hero.”
Nothing could ever replace your best buddy’s place in your heart.
