FoolyWang 101: Riding Your Way Into The Pearly Gates

2 Jul

Ever dream about how you were gonna get into the heavenly realm besides a casket or urn? Apparently David Morales Colón has other methods of transportation for arriving to the front steps of St. Peter. Gunned down in a fatal shooting last week, Colón’s family opted out of the tradional casket and wanted to display their loved one in something he enjoyed doing, riding bikes.

“He loved his motorcycle. It made him feel free from his worries,” a mourner told a local San Juan newspaper. “We all know he will be happy riding for eternity.”

The motorcycle that Colon was displayed on was a gift from his uncle and was delivered to the funeral home specifically for his wake.

The Marin Funeral Home in San Juan where the wake was held, has made headlines before for its highly unorthodox wakes. In 2008, the funeral home reportedly kept the embalmed body of a 24-year-old man standing throughout a wake that lasted three days.
