This isn’t a regular dead-body-in-a-casket kind of funeral. It’s way weirder than that.
Instead of having a normal funeral, Miriam Burbank was given a funeral that her children say she would have wanted. First, she wore dark shades and nail polish. Then, the body was placed upright sitting in a chair with a cigarette in one hand and a case of Busch beer on the table in front of her.
Looking like something you would see in a wax museum, her children said that these were all things she would have enjoyed at a social gathering. A disco ball even hung above her while she sat at her own table.
Although ironic, she was definitely the life of her last party.
