If this ruined Breaking Bad for you, sorry. But not really. 

An Albuquerque charity plans to hold a funeral for Walter Hartwell White next Saturday, allowing fans to remember the life and criminal exploits of the infamous Heisenberg. The ceremony was organized by die-hard fan Jackamoe Buzzell, who was inspired by the obituary featured in last week's Albuquerque Journal

The funeral will be held at Sunset Memorial Park (924 Menaul Blvd NE) at 4:30 p.m. There will be a procession beginning from the spot where White died on the show and Breaking Bad set decorator Michael Flowers will deliver a eulogy. Afterwards, Vernon's Hidden Valley Steakhouse (6855 4th St NW) will host a reception that starts at 8 p.m. 

Bernaillo Country Sheriff Dan Houston suggested turning the event into a fundraiser for Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless, so you'll have to donate to Vernon’s Steakhouse Walter White Endowment Fund at the Albuquerque Community Foundationa charity that Buzzell created—to attend. All proceeds will go to the Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless, a fitting notion as meth addicts account for some of the local homeless population. 

Donations will range from a $20 entry fee and $100 to enter the reception to $5,000 for a VIP package. If people will pay nearly $10,000 for Walt's tighty-whities, they'll pay whatever to honor the man one final time.
