According to USA Today, the late Jimmy Dean, who died last Sunday, will be buried in a $350,000 grand piano tomb. Both a public visitation and an open funeral service for the country music legend and sausage maker will be held in Richmond on Sunday, followed by a private burial on Monday. Will the piano tomb be wrapped in sausage casing, to pay homage to JD's two business careers?
The piano is a 9 1/2-foot long, granite piano mausoleum overlooking the James River. On the piano, which he and his wife Donna Meade Dean bought years ago, will be inscribed: "Here lies one hell of a man." Meade said the epitaph is inspired by the last line of "Big Bad John," his 1961-released, #1 hit song. R.I.P., Mr. Dean.
Were you a fan of Dean's music and his sausage? Or did you prefer one or the other? What would you like to be buried in other than a coffin? Me? I'm all for cremation! Haven't you ever seen movies where fools get buried alive? Shit's terrifying.
