Man’s Funeral Procession Stops at Fast Food Drive-Thru
A recently deceased Pennsylvania man went to a fast food restaurant so often that his daughter arranged for his funeral procession stopped by the drive-thru on the way to his burial.
David Kime Jr., 88, of West York, PA, was a World War II veteran who stopped by a nearby Burger King so often that the manager knew his order. When he died, his daughter, Linda Phiel, decided her father’s funeral procession should stop at ‘The Home of the Whopper.’ Each mourner got a Whopper Jr. — Kime’s favorite sandwich — on their way to the cemetery. Phiel placed a final to-go bag on Kime’s coffin at the cemetery, too.
“All of us are going to be in this position,” Phiel said. “And I think there’s a certain group who think we should be crying. But on the other hand, he lived a wonderful life and on his own terms.”
