She said it was the best day of her life.
The fake funeral, which was held on the Day of the Dead on Wednesday, took place at a funeral home in Camocim, Brazil.
Despite many of them being against the idea, Vera’s family and friends visited throughout the day to show support.
The owner of the Eternal Garden Funeral home, Paulo Araujo, donated the coffin and the space free to Vera, as a gesture of good will.

The married housewife, who doesn’t have children, explained that ‘celebrating’ her own funeral was an ‘old dream’ that she never thought would come true.
But she was determined to do it before she passed away.
Vera said: ‘I wanted to hold my own funeral 14 years ago. I’ve waited a long time and can’t believe that at last this wish has been granted.
