The family of 53-year-old Miriam Burbank wanted to do something different when honoring their relative.

And different it was.

The New Orleans woman affectionately known as “Mae Mae” was said to have loved beer and the New Orleans Saints.

So in order to pay homage, the family decided to prop Burbank up in a chair in her home surrounded by all of her favorite things. She was even holding a glass of Busch’s beer and a cigarette in the other. And her nails? Painted black and old for her favorite football team.
