Funeral is more like a party and dead woman is one of the "guests"

Posted: Updated:
NEW ORLEANS, LA - A New Orleans woman remembered as a "party girl" received a sendoff that captured her zest for life.

The family of 53-year-old Miriam Burbank said she loved a cold beer, an occasional scotch and the New Orleans Saints.

So a funeral home found a way to combine that all in her wake. They propped her up at a table with a cigarette in her hand, a glass of beer and disco lights.

Her fingernails are painted black and gold, the saints colors.

The arraignment was well received by friends and family members.
