Philadelphia Eagles fans of all ages celebrated their first Super Bowl win on Thursday with a parade through the city.
Unfortunately, not everyone made it long enough to see it happen, but that isn’t stopping some fans from bringing their loved-ones’; ashes along for the celebration.

“This is Dennis. He was next to me at the Eagles Superbowl Parade. He’s carrying with him the remains of his wife, Becky,” Dustin Javier posted on Facebook. “He said, ‘She was a diehard Eagles fan so I had to make sure she was here for this.’
After a while a police officer came up and handed him a beer. ‘This is from the guys across the street.’
Dennis looked over and a group of around 15 guys in Eagles gear held up their beers to toast him and his wife Becky.”
Another man was seen scattering his grandfather’s ashes at the parade.

“DON’T EVEN TRY TO TELL ME WE DON’T HAVE THE BEST FANS IN THE COUNTRY,” Dustin concluded.
