The body of San Juan was seated with his eyes open, and clothed in sports gear while holding a cigarette

The story of a Puerto-Rican man who was given one of the most conversional burials ever documented is trending online.

The man Fernando de Jesus Diaz Beato, instead of been laid in a coffin was dressed in sport gear, sited in a chair with his eyes open, holding a cigarette. Read the report which has been shared over 140,000 times on social media below:

A Puerto Rican man who was repeatedly shot and killed earlier this month has been laid to rest ‘just as he was in life’ in an extremely unconventional funeral.
Fernando de Jesus Diaz Beato, 26, was shot 15 times in the Villa Carolina neighborhood of San Juan on March 3, with police saying they have no leads on the crime.
Describing him as a ‘happy and very active person’, the family decided against a coffin for the funeral service in favor of a chair, sitting Diaz Beato with his legs crossed, dressed in his favorite clothes and with a cigarette between his fingers.
Finally, as a ‘surprise’, the funeral home chose to leave his eyes open.

Designed to look like he was sitting in a living room, Diaz Beato’s legged were crossed and a cigarette was placed between his fingers

‘Everybody is really surprised because seeing him like that is like seeing him as if he were alive,’ one of Diaz Beato’s sisters said in a video obtained by Live Leak.
Another sister, Ihizz Diaz Beato, said: ‘We decided to embalm him like this because he was a very happy person, very active and we want to remember him as he was.’
The final effect was if Diaz Beato was sitting and staring at the family and friends who gathered at the funeral.
Marin Funeral Home, in Rio Piedras, has become something of a pioneer of such services in San Juan.
This is the ninth unconventional funeral they have done – but the first where the eyes of the deceased have been left open.

‘I think that this time was the most impressive reaction to any of the work we have done,’ said Damaris Marin (right) the owner of Marin Funeral Home

Damaris Marin, the owner of Marin Funeral Home, said they worked closely with the family to achieve the desired effect.
‘This time is different because he is seated with his legs crossed but, this is the first dead man in history with his eyes open,’ she said.
‘We have seen that the families wish to see the dead men just as they were when they were alive.
‘We gave [the family] a surprise by leaving the eyes of the dead man open.
‘I think that this time was the most impressive reaction to any of the work we have done.’

While the result shocked the family, they said they were happy with how Diaz Beato looked.
‘We didn’t want to see him lying in the coffin,’ sister Ihizz Diaz Beato said.
‘We wanted something different. And also, we wanted him to be remembered by his friends and family the same way he was when he was alive.’
Diaz Beato was shot outside his home on March 3. Police continue to investigate.

    I was well informed that this was also done back in the days in Nigeria (Although I can’t remember the particular tribe). …that the deceased will be placed in an upright position and a symbol associated with his/her works while on earth will be placed in his/her hand. For Instance, if he were teacher, a chalk could be placed in his hand or if it were a food seller prolly a cooking spoon.
