I saw this story pop up on my social feed and was shooketh!
Che Lewis was only 29 when he was shot and killed. Well his family decided to embalm him in the sitting position and placed on a chair.
His body was taken around the city before arriving at the funeral home where he was denied entrance! The body was not allowed inside the funeral home so he was left sitting outside. Many people didn't even realize it was a dead body!
The owner of Dennie’s Funeral Home — whose motto is “Every life is unique therefore every funeral should be unique”, they were only honoring the family’s request. “The family requested it, but it was something we had on our bucket list to do so when the request came it wasn’t foreign to us because we are aware of funerals like that abroad,” - “We had him by us for three days to monitor how he was doing in the chair before we took it public."
Apparently the police are investigating the funeral home.
