Terminally ill cancer patient is star guest at her own wake

Sharon Jackson plans to live life until the very last drop. The 59-year-old was the star guest at her own wake last week, enjoying the glowing obituaries written by her family and friends. She's lived with cancer for six years and knows she only has a short time left. But Sharon was determined not to miss the craic, so she organised her awake wake with a party, a DJ, a photographer and all the people she holds dear - and her story has now gone viral. Sharon has also built and decorated her own coffin, and organised her own funeral, which will include a guard of honour of her nephews dressed like the cast of movie Reservoir Dogs.
