Cadaver Shown on Bike at Wake

Whats wrong with this picture?

Now if you haven’t figured it out already, the title of this post should give it away. this man is in fact dead.

Marin Funeral Home in San Juan, displayed the embalmed body of 22-year-old David Morales Colon, in sunglasses and sneakers, crouched astride his Honda Repsol racing bike.

“That must have been neat,” Richard Rosin of the Neil Bardal Funeral Home in Winnipeg, told the Star Monday.

“This is just interesting. It must have been a very important aspect of his life to have the family feel that strongly. Full credit to the funeral company for making it happen.”

Local media covered Morales’s wake last week. Elsie Marin, who with her husband Damaris runs the funeral home, told WAPA television the body was treated with respect. They would do whatever possible to meet a person’s wishes, she said.

Marin has carved out a reputation for unusual treatments at a family’s request. Two years ago, the funeral home managed to keep the corpse of 24-year-old Angel Pantoja Medina of San Juan standing upright in sunglasses and a Yankees baseball cap for his three-day wake 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.”

Family and friends said Morales loved his motorcycle, a gift from an uncle that was returned to the family after the viewing. Morales, who had been shot to death, was buried in a casket on April 27 after the two-day wake.

Aparently quite a few funeral directors are impressed with this level of embalming and some people are getting really interrested. Personally I want to be shown bungee jumping from a bridge. hey. could happen.–dead-biker-memorialized-astride-his-ride
