For those who wish that they could have an alternative to traditional wakes, there is now an option to pay tribute to their departed using their loved one’s corpse.
“In a tribute to her son who died in an Oct. 11 shooting, a woman hired a company to prop him up in front of a table of dominos, giving him one last party to celebrate his send-off to the great beyond, The Mirror reports.
Jomar Aguayo Collazo was shot a few days after his 23rd birthday.
Forgoing a traditional wake, Collazo’s body went on display at his mother’s bar in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico. Pictures show him propped him up at a table next to a jukebox, seeming to enjoy one last game.”
