An unlikely crew of pallbearers were recently spotted at a funeral in West Liberty last Friday.

Clowns dressed in full costume commemorated the life of their friend Boppo (Norman Thompson) by arriving at the memorial service in their gear. This silly yet sad ceremony celebrated Boppo's position as a life member of the Antioch Shrine Funster Clown Unit.
