Wife Plays The Most Amazing Joke On Husband Before Passing away, Punchline Takes Years

They say if you laugh last, you laugh the hardest. This was definitely the case for Phedre Fitton, who passed away from cancer in 2013.

“We really laughed about it and it was lovely to think that my mum was still there with us,” Antonia added.

Before she passed away, the 69-year-old gave her husband, Nigel, strict instruction to water the plants in their South African home, in the bathroom.

He continued to do this for several years, up until he recently moved out of their shared home and into a retirement home.

It was at this point, it was pointed out to him that the plants he’d been watering were made out of plastic!

Phedre and Nigel’s daughter Antonia posted photos of her father watering the fake plants on Twitter and wrote the following message:

“Before my mum passed away, she gave my dad strict instructions to water the plants in the bathroom. He’s been religiously watering them & keeping them alive. They look so amazing he decided to take them to his new home, only to discover they are plastic! Can hear my mum chuckling.”
