I hope he's at peace now...
Text: Milo's Funeral
I was called upon to attend Milo's funeral.
He was to be laid to rest in New York. The Asher family has a burial plot in a cemetary there.
I took a plane to New York and, from there, a train to the cemetary.
[Noah is in an airport terminal, people talking all around him.]
[Cut to Noah boarding the plane, then inside the plane.]
Noah: Almost time to go.
[A flight attendant demonstrates how to put on a life vest as another flight attendent explains the procedure on the PA.]
Flight attendant on PA: Your life vest is up in the pouch underneath your seat. If necessary, remove it from the pouch and pull it over your head.
Older flight attendant: Change the channel.
[Flight attendant turns and looks at Noah.]
Older flight attendant: No, that's gotta be off.
Noah: It's gotta be off, really?
Older flight attendant: Yes, really…
[Noah turns the camera back on, mid-flight, filming the clouds going by outside his window. The camera cuts to a different view of the window showing the turbine, as the ground is now in view. Text accompanies this shot.]
Text: I learned that Milo had already been cremated and buried for a while now. His family decided to hold the official funeral on July 5th.
[The PA chimes in.]
Text: Although it seemed like an obvious suicide, his mother had private investigators come and search his room. They found caches of various pills hidden in his closet.
They also held off the funeral to perform a toxicology report. The investigators ruled Milo's death a suicide.
Flight attendant: Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, this will begin our final descent. Please check to make sure that your seatbelts are securely fastened…
Text: He appeared to have overdosed on a heavy mix of his sleeping pills and depression-anxiety medication.
Flight attendant: …tables and seatbacks are up and locked. All electronic devices, please turn off at this time.
[Cut to black.]
[Noah is now at a train platform, his train comes to a stop and he boards it. The camera cuts to the middle of the train ride, followed by another cut of him shooting the passing scenery outside of his window.]
[Cut to black.]
[Noah is now in the burial plot, the camera pans over to Milo's burial plot, noted by the temporary tent-style gazebo. Text appears onscreen.]
Text: This is Milo's grave site, where his funeral was held. I wasn't allowed to film the ceremony, and I didn't anyway, out of respect for Milo and his family.
Milo's mother didn't seem to want to talk to me at all. She was avoiding me as much as she could.
When I asked her about the videos on this account, she said that she hadn't seen them and didn't want to.
She didn't want to be filmed.
[Screen fades to black, the ambient noise of the burial plot can still be heard at first, but then quickly fades as well.]
[The camera quickly cuts back in to the burial plot, accompanied by a Youtube annotation.]
Annotation: Sorry about this bit, it wasn't there when I viewed the complete file. My camera wouldn't turn off and I'm sure I edited this out when I rendered the video.
[Some slight video tearing appears to occur and Noah seems to be breathing heavily. As the video ends, some video tearing can be seen.]
- From 2:46 onwards (the section he thought he'd edited out), Noah seems to be coughing a bit.
- At 2:49, it looks like the Administrator is standing in front of the tree, to the right of the frame.
- The last frame of the video is split.
