we all get some crazy emails but when this crossed my inbox I just had to share.
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - A Puerto Rican man has been granted his wish to remain standing even in death. 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. His brother Carlos told the El Nuevo Dia newspaper the victim had long said he wanted to be upright for his own wake: 'He wanted to be happy, standing.' The owner of the Marin Funeral Home, Damaris Marin, told The Associated Press the mother asked him to fulfill her dead son's last wish. Pantoja was found dead Friday underneath a bridge in San Juan and buried Monday. Police are investigating
And here are some pics of this fool chillin in the corner:
besides this whole thing being completely uncomfortable and wrong you have to wonder why you would want a dead body standing in your house for 3 DAYS!!! who has a 3 day wake? maybe that's a PR thing but that bamma was standing in his momma living room day and night for 3 days. People do some crazy shyt.
note: if you happen to know this guy and were apart of preparing this wake, I am sorry for your loss and I understand that you wanted to grant his last requests but some things are better left as ideas.
