(Scroll down for video) A family celebrated their mother’s death with everything she loved in her lifetime.
Miriam Burbank of New Orleans, Louisiana, died at the age of 53. Her two daughters wanted her funeral to reflect her life.
The daughters asked the Charbonnet Funeral Home, to help arrange one last party for their mother, during which her body was displayed sitting at a table that had her favorite beer, whiskey and menthol cigarettes.
One cigarette was placed in her hands. Burbank wore her favorite jewelry, her coat and sunglasses. Her fingernails were painted black and gold, to honor the New Orleans Saints football team, which she loved.
Family members liked the idea and said it was a very fitting goodbye for Burbank.
