Man’s Wife and Girlfriend Each Place Obituaries For Him in Same Newspaper
Not many people are so loved that they get not one but two obituaries in the paper.
That happened for the late Leroy Black from Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey.
The 55-year-old died last Thursday and apparently left behind a wife...and a girlfriend! And apparently each of them decided they would run their own obituary for him in the "Press of Atlantic City".
Both obits ran on Friday, one right after the other one. And they used an identical picture of Leroy.
The first one was his wife's and it read: "He is survived by his loving wife, Bearetta Harrison Black."
The second one was from his girlfriend and it said he was "survived by his longtime girlfriend, Princess Hall."
Here's the funny part. According to the funeral director, Bearetta and Princess did know about each other, and they actually coordinated on the funeral. They just clearly disagreed about who should get mentioned in the obituary, so they both ran their own.
The funeral was yesterday in Atlantic City. As far as we know, the cops weren't called.
