Dead Man Attends His own Funeral

 

24-year-old Angel Pantoja Medina informed his Mother that on his death he wanted a funeral with a difference, so after the local funeral directors embalmed him, he was placed standing up at the back of his mothers’ room.

The Puerto Ricans man’s body was discovered under a bridge on Friday and his wishes were granted. On the Monday, for the three day mourning period, he was dressed in a Yankees baseball cap and sunglasses & left standing.

His brother said he had always wanted this sort of farewell. "He wanted to be happy, standing." Police are now investigating the circumstances of his death.

Wouldn't it be taboo for a person not to attend their funeral?

The simple fact that one is the star of the show would indicate that, well he is there regardless whether he chose to be or not? Just seems odd that one would have to announce that a deceased man showed up to his own funeral. they wouldnt have a funeral if he wasnt there/dead...

Ahhh...sounds like the brain washings you get in churches when you are young. If you don't believe in god, when you die you will go to hell. The churches also stated to the young 5-12 year olds that you WILL die and when the times come to be judged...

I believe it is wrong to feed this crap to the young. The churches do this so they can convert the young for their own benefits. The more children they convert to their cause, the more tax free money they will get when those children turn adults. Plus those children will be doing most of the elbow grease work when they hit the older youth groups.

In my honest opinion, churches are like cults but do alot of good in changing troubled people. I just hate it when you meet people that have the "holier than thou" attitude, or judge another person because they don't believe in a spirit that' Always was". Those people fail to look at any other fact or theory that might disprove or damage their own belief. Sorta like being brain washed in a way to where their belief is perfect, and anything other is completely flawed.

This statement is from a person who grew up in a 'light version' of christianity, a Baptist Church, and was baptised when 12 years old. I saw the good, and the bad, and the bad out weighed the good. I saw the whole picture of the church, which I now call a cult. I guess I'm more of a fact person. I cant follow a book written by men anymore, which men are sinners and will be forgiven of their sins if the confess. BLAH, BLAH, BLAH.

Holly crap, my theory turned into a rant.
