Dead Man Dressed As Green Lantern For Wake
No matter what, wakes are pretty creepy events. There really is no way to avoid feeling uncomfortable when you are at a wake. There’s nothing comforting or normal about viewing the body of a person that has died recently.
So if it’s already going to be weird, why not at least have a little fun with it? Doing this might help you cope with the event. We are not saying that you should enjoy it, but maybe make it a little more lighthearted. And that’s exactly what the family of recently deceased 50 year old Renato Garcia did.
The man was dressed up in his favorite Green Lantern costume for his wake. Sure it’s pretty weird, but no weirder than seeing a dead relative dressed up in a suit and tie.
According to the family, Garcia was not really a huge fan of Green Lantern or even comic books in general. He just really liked the outfit. The man apparently found the costume in a bag of donated clothes several keeps ago, and he took a liking to it and starting wearing it a lot.
You could have seen Garcia in the weeks preceding his death wearing the costume a lot. And according to his closest family members, he was a real hero and was always there for any family member in need.
So they decided to dress him in his favorite Green Lantern costume for the wake. Why not? It’s pretty great that his family members final look at him will be of him dressed up as a super hero.
