Man Gets His Last Hamburger During His Funeral Procession

David S. Kime Jr., 88, liked to eat Whopper Juniors from Burger King. He loved fast food and especially loved that burger. On the way to the funeral, the hearse that carried him stopped by the drive-through window for one last burger:

"He always lived by his own rules," said Linda Phiel, one of Kime's three daughters. "His version of eating healthy was the lettuce on the WHOPPER JR."

As a tribute to a man who loved fast food, Phiel's family stopped for some burgers on the way to the cemetery. Mourners followed the hearse carrying Kime's flag-draped casket through the drive-thru. Each got a WHOPPER JR.

The sandwich was among Kime's favorites.

"He liked his WHOPPER JRs.," said Margaret Hess, head manager of the Manchester Township Burger King. She and her staff prepared 40 of the sandwiches for the funeral procession.

"They also wanted one for the deceased," Hess said.

Phiel said the display wasn't a joke, rather a happy way of honoring her father and the things that brought him joy.

Meanwhile the person behind all the super-slow moving cars going through the drive through muttered a simple "FML" and slowly tapped their fingers across the top of the steering wheel while waiting for their turn.
