He looks so... lifelike.  It's amazing what they can do with a body these days.  But, was he always that pale?  And was he that tall??

"Beloved husband & dad is mourned, but it's not his body in the casket"
"Nearly everyone who passed the silver casket at Tindley Temple United Methodist Church yesterday morning whispered to each other. That's not Tex, they said. But the corpse was wearing his blue suit and black boots....
Roberts' wife...told a female employee: "This is not my husband."  But family members said the woman at the South Philadelphia funeral home insisted: "That's how they look when they die."

So they take the wrong body, stuff it into clothes that don't fit, and insist to the family that it's the right stiff.  Classic.  Another source I heard from said the other body wasn't even the right race.

Ok, that's pretty bad.  But it gets worse.  A lot worse.

"The funeral home found Roberts' remains, and rushed them back to the church. When an assistant opened the door of the hearse, mortified relatives screamed at the sight.
"The casket had tilted and his leg was hanging out," said Wearing, who believed they drove so fast, hitting bumps, that the casket opened.  "It was unspeakable," she added."

Hey, times are tough.  The funeral home was probably running an accelerated revenue campaign, a 'cash-for-clunkers' program for those with aging respiratory systems.

"Distraught, hysterical mourners poured out of the church onto the sidewalk, while others tried to calm them down.
Keith Harris, 19, had a seizure and was rushed to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. An unidentified woman had an asthma attack and was also taken to a hospital, Wearing said."
