TLC will air a one-hour special called BEST FUNERAL EVER on December 26th. The special features the unique services offered at the Golden Gate Funeral Home in Dallas, Texas, a facility which provides grieving families with "home-goings".
"A home-going is much different than a funeral, it's a celebration," owner John Beckwith, Jr. explained in a statement. "The Golden Gate experience is our version of the traditional African American home-going celebration. We do not produce generic funerals; everybody's experience has to be different."
The show will features three home-goings: a Christmas-inspired funeral, a State Fair-themed celebration, and a barbecue. Get a sneak peek below!
