I was excited about this and since I can't share it with my FI, I thought I would share with you!
The back story: When my FI and I started dating he ALWAYS wore his favorite pair of sandals (even in the snow) that were primarily duct tape by that point. As new holes developed, he would simply add more duct tape to patch them up. Needless to say, everyone gave him a hard time about those awful sandals. Eventually, as we were walking home one night, I "accidently" stepped on them and broke them It really was an accident, but I didn't feel too bad. Its been a running joke with us and he has been giving me a hard time about "killing" his sandals ever since.
Now that I wrote a novel... here is my point =) We are including a roll of duct tape with the "obituary", and instructions to make your own sandals in all the OOT bags. Here is the obituary:

Your FI will appreciate your recognition of his fallen sandals, as well! Geesh...men, right?!

I wish my man had something I could "kill" and then honor.
The only thing that comes to mind is a ratty old pair of undies that he refuses to throw out. I think my guests my have me committed if I threw a ripped up pair of undies in their oot bag....

what a great idea to let your guests in on the joke. I just laughed so hard. I think all of us have FI's with some sort of embarrassing article of clothing etc that resembles the story of "the duck tape sandals". Mine wears a grateful dead t shirt with so many holes he might as well not wear a shirt. I find it hysterical and mortifying at the same time.
