LEVINGTON, EAST SUFFOLK – The town of Levington in East Suffolk bade a spectral farewell to its beloved medium, Brian “The Ghostbuster” Peabody, yesterday.
By Ian Bred, Norfolk Correspondent
Having spent 45 years communicating with the dearly departed, Peabody found himself at the final crossroads, leaving behind a legacy of spiritual guidance and ghostly counselling.
During his long career, the wacky ghost whisperer, hailed as the spectral shepherd of Suffolk, helped over 2,000 wandering spirits find their way to the other side. In a fitting tribute, the townsfolk decided to give him a send-off worthy of the otherworldly service he had provided for nearly half a century.
If there’s something strange in your neighborhood…
Central to the funeral procession for the man who had bridged the gap between the living and the dead was a befitting white hearse, customized to resemble the iconic 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor ambulance known as the Ectomobile from the Ghostbusters movies. Cruising through the winding streets of Levington, flower-throwing locals couldn’t help but feel a shiver of appreciation as the phantom’s friend’s corpse passed by.
The homage to Peabody’s unique career became a spectacle that transcended the sombre tone of traditional funerals. Townsfolk and onlookers, some donning makeshift ghost costumes, lined the streets to bid farewell to their spectral mediator as the Ectomobile hearse, complete with ghost-catching paraphernalia, proudly carried Peabody to his final resting place.
The Ghostly memory
As the Ectomobile hearse rolled away, its sirens wailing in ghostly harmony, the town of Levington celebrated the memory of its eccentric Ghostbuster. In life, Brian Peabody left a phantasmagorical mark on his home town. The question is, will this be the last Levington sees of its deceased supernatural son?
