GRAND ISLAND, Nebraska (AP) -- The Rev. Jim Keyser promises to say nice things at your funeral -- if you're the highest bidder.

The pastor of Trinity United Methodist Church said he felt a little out of step as he tried to think of something related to his work that he could offer at Saturday's Rotary Radio Auction.

After all, people can't buy redemption, he said.

So alongside the auction's portable DVD player, the gas grill, sprinkler systems and other worldly items, Keyser is offering a eulogy.

"For an extra $50, I'll say some really nice things," Keyser said.
