Best. Funeral. Ever.

For most of us, death is a time to mourn and shed tears for the departed. For others, it’s a time to honor their loved ones and celebrate the life through services that turn the traditional funeral on its head.

In the one- hour special, BEST FUNERAL EVER, TLC goes inside the Dallas-based Golden Gate Funeral Home where John Beckwith Jr. and his staff organize the most unique ceremonies in the country, called home-going celebrations.

BEST FUNERAL EVER features three elaborate home-going services:

· The death of a man who cherished the holiday season is sent off with a Christmas-inspired funeral, complete with reindeer, alpacas, elves and snow.

· A man whose disability prevented him from riding roller coaster is honored with a State-Fair-themed home-going ceremony and spends his last day on earth enjoying the rides, games and attractions.

· A former doo-wop singer known for his famous rib sauce jingle is remembered at a barbecue-themed home-going service. His family celebrates his life among live pigs, praise dancers, and a barbecue sauce fountain in which loved ones dip a ceremonious rib to say goodbye.

The party kicks off Wednesday, December 26th at 8/7c. BEST FUNERAL EVER is produced Park Slope Productions and executive produced by Paul Reitano and Terrence Sacchi.

How did he negotiate you getting stuff into him and not the other way around?

I hope you got a nice ring.

He's 6'6 and I'm 5'1 so it just works out that I would fit into his body cavity tbh. Otherwise he'd stretch out my skin.
