Fight Against Maturity

Here’s to you, Mr. Cole. (Clink) Bon Voyage!

A popular Toronto [entertainer] is dying of cancer, but has managed to keep his sense of humour.

Dan Cole, known as the Busker of the Beaches, attended his own wake Saturday and joked with friends on what could have been a sombre night.

“I didn’t want to miss people saying good things about me by waiting until I died,” he noted. “[And] it gives me an opportunity to say goodbye.”

He’s dying of incurable lung cancer, but he and his friends kept the mood light with banjos, acrobats and a lot of laughter.
