Default $end error.

I keep getting this error

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /inc/posts.inc.php on line 87
but line 87 is ?> so not sure what the deal is with this. but its driving me nuts. Script below.

//check if there is a post
function valid_pid($pid) {
	$pid = (int)$pid;
	$total = mysql_query("SELECT COUNT(`post_id`) FROM `posts` WHERE `post_id` {$pid}");
	$total = mysql_result($total, 0);
	if ($total !=1){
		return false;
		return true;
//Fetches a summery of all blog posts
function get_posts(){
	$sql = "SELECT
				`posts`.`post_id` AS `id`,
				`posts`.`post_title` AS `title`,
				LEFT(`posts`.`post_body`, 512) AS `preview`,
				`posts`.`post_user` AS `user`,
				DATE_FORMAT(`posts`.`post_date`, '%d/%m/%y %H:%i:%s') AS `date`,
				DATE_FORMAT(`comments`.`last_comment`, '%d/%m/%y %H:%i:%s') AS `last_comment`
			FROM `posts`
			COUNT(`comment_id`) AS `total_comments`,
			MAX(`comment_date`) AS `last_comment`
			FROM `comments`
			GROUP BY `post_id`
			) AS `comments`
			ON `posts`.`post_id` = `comments`.`post_id`
			ORDER BY `posts`.`post_date` DESC";
	$posts = mysql_query($sql);
	$rows = array();
	while (($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($posts)) !==false){
		$row[] = array (
			'id'			=>$row['id'],
			'title'			=>$row['title'],
			'preview'		=>$row['preview'],
			'user'			=>$row['user'],
			'date'			=>$row['date'],
			'total_comments' =>($row['total_comments'] === null) ? 0 : $row['total_comments'],
			'last_comment'	=>($row['last_comment'] === null) ? 'never' : $row['last_comment']
	return $rows;

//gets a single post from the table.
function get_post($pid){
	$pid = (int)$pid;
	$sql = "SELECT
			`post_title` AS `title`,
			`post_body` AS `body`,
			`post_user` AS `user`,
			`post_date` AS `date`
			FROM `posts`
			WHERE `post_id` = {$pid}";
			$post = mysql_query($sql);
			$post = mysql_fetch_assoc($post);
			$post['comments'] = get_comments($pid);
			return $post;
//adds new blog entry
function add_post($name, $title, $body){
	$name = mysql_real_escape_string(htmlentities($name));
	$title = mysql_real_escape_string(htmlentities($title));
	$body = mysql_real_escape_string(nl2br(htmlentities($body)));
	mysql_query("INSERT INTO `posts` (`post_user`, `post_title`, `post_body`, `post_date`) VALUES ('{$name}', '{$title}', '{$body}', NOW())");
