The conversation then turned to the topic of open caskets.

Gloria explained that her family often have open caskets at funerals, and would most likely do the same.

The radio presenter went on: “A lot of people don’t like the thought of open coffins, but personally in my family everything is open coffin.”

Gloria initially giggled at Janet’s remark, before adding: “Don’t wish me off too soon!”
