Unusual funeral for biker
SOUTH PHILADELPHIA - May 26, 2010 (WPVI) -- Julio Lopez, a member of a local motorcycle club, passed away earlier this month.
His family and friends asked funeral director Charlene Wilson-Doffoney to pose him on his motorcycle for the viewing.
The viewing took place this past Sunday at the Mitchum-Wilson Funeral Home.
His family says Lopez loved his family and community and also had a passion for Salsa dancing and riding his motorcycle.
Wilson-Doffoney says she's getting more unique request like this one.
"I got a lady who just asked me if I can put her in a truck and I will take her and have her sitting in her truck. I'll do anything they want me to do. I'm here to serve the community and I believe however you live is how you should go out," Wilson-Doffoney said.
Another woman wants Wilson-Doffoney to pose her body in her kitchen.
