Though it's not always pleasant to ponder, death unites all of us and, in the words of Big Boi and Wavves, death will most certainly hunt us down. With this great and humbling unity firmly in mind, why not really celebrate a life at funerals, wakes, and other memorial gatherings? For Jomar Aguayo Collazo, shot and killed just days after his 23rd birthday, his own wake provided the perfect opportunity to enjoy one last game of dominoes:
Similar diorama-style wakes are currently experiencing an increase in popularity in Puerto Rico, according to the Huffington Post. Marin Funeral Home in San Juan, who worked with Collazo's mother on the wake, reportedly specializes in making dioramas out of the deceased.
Collazo's body went on display at his mother's bar in Rio Piedras, according to the Mirror. The practice of diorama-style wakes and funerals is considered legal in the region.
