A woman offered to do this at funerals and Neil Gaiman (and 1000s of others) are totally up for it

Just in case you were tempted.

And it clearly struck a chord because it went madly, crazily viral, prompting all sorts of responses including this, from author Neil Gaiman.

And here’s how other people responded, as the whole idea truly took on a life of its own.

Such was the response that she later said this.
