Liverpool, England-- Two of the Beatles' best-known characters married each other on April 29. Eleanor Rigby married Father Mackenzie at the same Lutheran church where the minister works. Sir Paul McCartney was the best man, and Yoko Ono was Ms. Rigby's matron-of-honour. The newlyweds plan to live in a house on Penny Lane.
The marriage came about after Eleanor had a near-death experience, and was buried alive for a short time.
"I dropped dead from emphysema at church one day." said Eleanor. "I was buried alone with my name. No one came to my funeral." she said with a sad look on face.
"I was just wiping off my hands as I was walked from the grave." said Father Mackenzie. "I was depressed and thinking that no one was saved, when I suddenly heard a noise." said the minister.
Father Mackenzie heard Eleanor Rigby frantically knocking on the insides of her coffin. She was disinterred and then rushed to a nearby hospital. The near death experience changed Eleanor's outlook on life.
"I no longer wait by the window. Every single day is a precious miracle!" beamed Eleanor.
"And I no longer believe that no one can be saved!" echoed Father Mackenzie.
The strange incident also changed Father Mackenzie's life. The two started dating, and finally married on a perfect Spring day.
"I can't wait to darn his socks in the night when there's nobody there. Now we both care!" said Eleanor
