The Weekend At Bernies Funeral

20 08 2008

Oh dear.

A funeral home used a special embalming treatment to keep the corpse of 24-year-old Angel Pantoja Medina standing upright for his three-day wake.

Dressed in a Yankees baseball cap and sunglasses, Pantoja was mourned by relatives while propped upright in his mother’s living room.

Rest in peace, Angel Pantoja Medina, but I have to say this is pretty creepy but if it’s what you wanted, so be it.

UPDATE: Due to some really foul language that was left by several commenters on this post. I’ve closed comments and deleted some of the comments that were offensive. Enough is enough.

Maybe he was just a “Stand Up” guy (‘sorry, I couldn’t resist).

Why did they pose him so he’s grabbing his crotch? Does his zombie have crabs?

When I was in high school a classmate whose father was a preacher drowned in a local lake while swimming after a baptism. His parents had him embalmed and then promptly propped him up in a chair in front of their living room’s picture window so everyone could drive by and see him.

After a couple days and a lot of traffic, local officials stepped in.

FOR ALL OF THE PEOPLE THAT LEFT NASTY COMMENTS, I HOPE YOU GO STRAIGHT TO HELL. YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF. WHAT IF THIS WAS YOUR BROTHER OR EVEN YOUR FATHER, HOW WOULD YOU FEEL???? THIS IS THE QUESTION YOU SHOULD HAVE ASKED YOURSELF BEFORE SENDING THESE HORRIBLE COMMENTS.IF THAT WAS HIS WISH, I’M HAPPY IT CAME TRUE FOR HIM.

Lauren, I get what you are saying, but no one here left a nasty comment. Actually, there were curious. And for your other comments, the profanity isn’t going to happen here.
I am glad he had the funeral he wanted, but it’s different.
We said that.
It’s different and we were intrigued. We all here want him peace. BUT …
It was unique.
And that’s cool.
