Per WGNO...
quote:

Renard Matthews was killed in New Orleans 2 weeks ago. He was a young 18 years old, and while the tragedy of losing him so young weighs heavy on his family, they chose to have his body prepared for Sunday afternoon’s wake in a way that they want to remember him.

At the Charbonnet Labat Glapion Funeral Home in Treme, Matthews was sitting in a chair, video game controller in hand, surrounded by his favorite snacks, and his beloved Boston Celtics on the television screen.

If I didn't know better, I'd swear this was an April Fools article. Did they bury him lie that?

Don’t bury him just place him in his man cave and keep him around as if he is still alive

Next guy will be in a bathrobe, watching porn, and jerking off. Just doing what he loved.

At what point does a corpse go from Gumby to Robocop? Honest question....curious how a person would be placed in a coffin for the burial ceremony.

How are the morticians gonna straighten out those legs to get him in a coffin? Rigor Mortis is a hard,terrible thing.

It's weird enough that his family did this even weirder that they took pics. I'm getting a Weekend at Bernie's vibe.

The way a family grieves the loss of a son should in no way be a point of judgment for all of you. RIP sir.

Somebody start a gofundme to buy that young man a season ticket to the Celtics. One plane ticket should do, since he can just sit there between games.
