It's what she would have wanted. Party animal Miriam Burbank lived life to the full and enjoyed gulping back cold beers and scotch.
So when she passed away, her daughters naturally decided to make her funeral a reflection of her party lifestyle complete with disco balls and party music. But they didn’t stop there.
Known as Mae Mae to her friends and the family, New Orleans resident Ms Burbank was sat in an open casket at the centre of her funeral in a living room setting with her favourite beer, whiskey and cigarettes.
The deceased 53-year-old had been a lifelong fan of the New Orleans Saints American football team and was dressed in their colours. And of course, the girls painted her nails in the Saints' trademark brown and gold.
