    Default Creepy or Creepy? Dead teen propped in chair, watching Celtics for wake display

    I find this creepy, YMMV.

    Family Displays Teen’s Body in Celtics Jersey, Holding Video Game Controller at Wake

    The family of a New Orleans teen shot and killed last month is honoring his memory in a unique way.

    Seventeen-year-old Renard Matthews loved the Boston Celtics and playing video games, which is exactly how his family wanted to remember him at his wake on Sunday, WDSU reported.

    Matthews' body was dressed in a Kyrie Irving Boston Celtics jersey and Celtics socks. He was posed to hold a video game controller while sitting next to some of his favorite food, photos showed.

    On June 25, New Orleans police received a call that a person was "down" and found Matthews' body with a gunshot wound to the head, the Times-Picayune reported.

    Matthews had been walking his dog when shot and was also robbed of his cellphone, his aunt told the newspaper.
    Police have not arrested a suspect.
    The teen will reportedly be buried on Tuesday.

    People are getting downright Victorian lately.

    I really, honestly do not understand this trend.

    I always thought the wake happened AFTER the burial. So did they have another wake on the following Tuesday? I hope they didn't dig him up again.

    Poor kid. Fuck guns.

    People have different ways of dealing with death. It's not for me, but neither are giant sprays of gladiolas and droning ministers.

    Wakes always happen before the funerals here? Like a viewing, where people stop in and say good bye, then the next day is the service and/or burial.

    Yeah, not judging anyone, just not quite grasping it either. I guess I get the idea behind it - to remember him alive, as he was, as opposed to lying down, looking asleep. Just not for me...

    In a way, I think it's great. We have become so removed from death and most services are generic, sanitized things.

    Yeah each to their own but certainly not for me. Having said that having buried my Mom, she didn't look like herself.
