Funeral Home presents dead body on a motorcycle for the wake (with Video)
Traditional wake by a funeral home presents a dead body in a casket. The best you can do it to have a really nice casket but not on a motorbike. A funeral home known for unorthodox wakes did a wake where the dead man was presented on his motorbike. Twenty-two year old Puerto Rican man David Morales Colón who was shot to death last Thursday was presented on his motorcycle.
Back to the present: Yesterday and today, callers who stopped to pay their final respects to the late Mr. Colón got a bit of a surprise. Instead of the traditional presentation of the body in a casket, Mr. Colón's corpse, dressed in casual duds and sunglasses, was instead posed in a very lifelike position atop his Repsol-liveried Honda CBR600 F4. According to Puerto Rico's Primera Hora newspaper, the motorcycle was given to the victim by his uncle, and upon Mr. Colón's untimely demise, family members delivered the bike to the funeral home specifically for this unusual wake.Source: www.autoblog.com
Interestingly, 2 years ago, the funeral home embalmed a 24-year-old man and kept the body standing upright for during a three-day wake.
