Children of Fate:
When September comes for you she only cares about one thing: your soul…. But what to do with that shell of a body we have no use for as of now?
Here’s a few weird funerals that answered that question:
1. Even in death, Christopher Rivera Amaro almost looked ready to box, leaning against the corner of a simulated ring. Mourners who came to his wake in San Juan in February 2014 found him posed afoot, a yellow hood on his head, sunglasses glasses over his eyes and blue boxing gloves on his hands. Elsie Rodriguez, vice president of the Marin Funeral Home, said Rivera’s family wanted to stress his boxing. The funeral home suggested posing him in a ring. The 23-year-old Rivera had a 5-15 record in the 130-pound weight
2. In 2012, a man married his deceased girlfriend in a combination funeraland wedding ceremony. Chadil Deffy, also known as Deff
Yingyuen, placed a ring on the finger of Sarinya “Anne” Kamsook, his girlfriend of 10 years, during the ceremony in Thailand’s Surin
province. The couple had planned to get married in the future, but Yingyuen wanted to focus on his studies before tying the knot. Unfortunately, Kamsook unexpectedly died in an accident before the couple could set a date. Unfortunately, the promise of “till death do us part” won’t mean much in this wedding.
3. While most people think of funerals as a time to mourn the loss of a loved one quietly in black attire, folks at Golden Gate Funeral Home based in Dallas, Texas have an entirely different attitude.
In January 2013, the death of a man who loved the holiday season inspired a Christmas-themed funeral featuring dancing, reindeer, snow, and a coffin on a sleigh.
As with any family gathering, the funeral preparation hit a couple of rough patches … particularly when one Golden Gate employee refused to don a gingerbread head for the occasion
