Heartbreaking video shows daughter giving dying dad RUM-AND-COKE for their 'last drink' together
Pennelope Ann said, 'I came prepared for the send-off. Give him a little taste here'
A woman from Australia has gone viral after she shared some precious moments from her father's deathbed. Pennelope Ann and her mother shared one last drink with her terminally ill father. The woman used a syringe to give the dying man — who had been suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, a group of lung diseases that block airflow and make it difficult to breathe — a few drops of a Bundaberg rum mixed with coke.
Ann reportedly posted the heartwarming video on TikTok in which she said: “I came prepared for the send-off. Give him a little taste here.” Her mother then said in the clip that they will be hand feeding the drink to her husband as Ann added: “We brought you rum, Dad. We’re going to put it in [a syringe] and put it in your mouth.”

She then dripped the drink directly into his mouth from the syringe and asked him if he found it any good. Her father managed to nod his head while Ann happily screamed, “Hell yeah!” The caption video, which has been reportedly recieved approximately two million views, read: “One last drink with Dad before his spirit returned to the universe. Until we cross paths again, old man. I love you.”
The social media video has also attracted a lot of condolences and warm comments on TikTok with one user saying: “I’m a palliative care nurse and this is brilliant. May he rest in peace.” The second user wrote: “Rest in peace. That’s an awesome send off and I hope his wife is doing okay [as it is] such a hard thing for her to go through. Condolences to all his loved ones.” “That is a guy who wanted to celebrate the life he had and so he should do it the way he wanted to. Sleep tight buddy,” a comment added.
There were a few reactions on Twitter as well. A person tweeted: "My mum did this for my grandad. Sponged some Boddingtons on to his lips before he shuffled off xx." Another person said, "Good Job, R.I.P." "Bless your sweet heart 😘," the third one added.

In another unrelated incident, New York-based writer and talent manager Andy Corren went with a rather unconventional tone while writing the eulogy for his dead mother — Renay Mandel Corren. In December 2021, he wrote: “A plus-sized Jewish lady redneck died in El Paso on Saturday,” before noting: “Because she was my mother, the death of zaftig good-time gal Renay Corren at the impossible old age of 84 is newsworthy to me, and I treat it with the same respect and reverence she had for, well, nothing. A more disrespectful, trash-reading, talking and watching woman in NC, FL or TX was not to be found.”
“There will be a very disrespectful and totally non-denominational memorial on May 10, 2022, most likely at a bowling alley in Fayetteville, NC. The family requests absolutely zero privacy or propriety, none what so ever, and in fact encourages you to spend some government money today on a 1-armed bandit, at the blackjack table or on a cheap cruise to find our inheritance. She spent it all, folks. She left me nothing but these lousy memories. Which I, and my family of 5 brothers and my sister-in-laws, nephews, friends, nieces, neighbors, ex-boyfriends, Larry King's children, who I guess I might be one of, the total strangers who all, to a person, loved and will cherish her. Forever,” Corren added.
