As an added bonus, a deceased coupled were married. How is that possible? Simple; you cremate them both, put them in urns, dress the urns as a bride and a groom, walk them down the aisle, pronounce them man and wife and then comingle the ashes.
The deceased, Darrell and Terria Jenkins’ son Michael was the brainchild behind this funeral. If you get a chance to watch the clip on the Internet, make sure you do. It’s just the most disturbing and creepy thing you have ever seen.
An average funeral can cost between $7,000 to $10,000. But what’s the price tag on the “Best Funeral Ever?” An hour-long service can go for as much as $50,000. I guess that’s the going rate for a gaudy, garish funeral party that will get you on television.
No word on whether TLC picks up any of that tab, but somehow I doubt it.
Personally, I do not have a favorite funeral. But then I don’t have a favorite book, movie, or celebrity either.
I don’t plan on watching “Best Funeral Ever” in the future. Once is more than enough. I guess I’m just boring. Fortunately, I like it that way.
