Lorna Johnson, of Luton, England, loved Halloween. So when the 56-year-old passed away from cancer, it only made sense for family and friends to attend her funeral in costume.

"Basically, Halloween was always my mum's favorite time of year, we always had fancy dress parties," Lorna's son Neil told Luton Today. "When we were deciding what to do for the funeral, it just seemed the perfect thing."

"My mum's always said you need to celebrate, you need to have a party. So we're not going to sit around feeling sorry for ourselves. My mum wouldn't want that."

"We've had a good life as a family," Neil added. "Our mum and dad were something else. We're proud to be who we are and to be their children."
