    Default Man's wish to be standing during his wake granted

    24-year-old Angel Pantoja Medina of Puerto Rico apparently told his family that when he passes away, he wants to stand upright through his wake. Well, his family granted his wish. Dressed in a Yankees cap, sunglasses and a gold chain, Angel was mourned by family members while standing tall in his mother's living room for 3 days.
    The funeral home told The Associated Press that they used a special embalming treatment to keep him standing. His brother said, "He wanted to be happy, standing."
    The police are currently investigating Angel's death. His body was found underneath a bridge last Friday.
    I guess it's not that strange. I mean, I want half of my ashes stuffed into one of Shauna Sand's exquisite lucite heels. I want the other half scattered along Robertson Blvd. That way I will always be with international supermodel Phoebe Price. Oh and save a line of my ashes for Amy Wino. I want her to snort me up, Keith Richards-style.
    Okay, I take it back. After going through these pictures, I need someone to hold my hand and feed me a Twinkie. I'm a little uncomfortable

    Maybe this means my family will honor my wishes of a see thru casket, in a crypt with a working cell phone. You know just in case I'm not dead.

    I wish they said WHY he wanted to be standing! What was the point? Was he not able to stand due to an illness/injury or something?
    Whatever.....it's definitely interesting.

    Very creepy. Imagine walking into a room where your dead relative is standing in the corner!! I guess if his family are ok with it then fine. But, too weird for me.

    I like the way they have him grabbing his genitals. Very nice. The Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses really take it over the top.

    To each their own, but I can't imagine having my dead relative propped up in the corner for 3 days. Not something I'd want to run up on at 4 a.m. on my way to the bathroom.
