We can thank Taco Bell for giving us “Fourth Meal,” and “First Meal,” but it looks like credit for “Last Meal” goes to Burger King. This past weekend, the funeral procession for 88-year-old Whopper lover David S. Kime Jr. passed through the local Burger King drive-through on the way to the cemetery.

As a tribute to her late father, a decorated World War II vet with a passion for fast food, Linda Phiel made sure Kime had one last burger for his journey to the hereafter. As friends and family mourned and said their good-byes at his grave site, she held back tears while placing a Whopper Junior atop his American-flag-draped casket. No doubt, he had it his way.
