Burger King Funeral

Tags:

After David S. Kime Jr.'s funeral, as his family and friends made their way to the cemetery, they made a pit stop in Kime's name: to a Burger King drive-through. Kime, a WWII veteran who died at age 88 on January 20 in York, PA, was a long-time fan of the Whopper Jr., and his family chose to honor him by purchasing his favorite sandwich.

Kime's daughter Linda placed the burger atop the spray of flowers on the casket at the cemetery, and said that the tribute was a way of honoring her father through "the things that brought him joy."

We think this is a wonderfully unique way of remembering someone who has died, and we're interested to hear your thoughts. Have you ever been a part of an unusual tribute like this one? What is your idea of a special tribute?
