I'm starting to prepare for life-changing move and so was trying to figure out which cues I want to keep or sell but there's one I'm thinking about being buried with and it made me think: do you know of anyone who was buried with a cue?
I've heard of a few being buried with cues but don't personally know anyone.
I think at this point in my life I'd like to be buried with my Schon my Beretta and my dads pocket knife but my wife has made it pretty clear if I go first she's selling all my "JUNK".
I heard Jack Colavita was buried with his Richard Black.
Also Melvin Strawberry Brooks was buried with his Black Boar.
Are you sure about Colativa's Richard Black buried with him?
The reason I ask is, I recall it being on Ebay for sale, years ago.
If it was buried with him, the family would have had to get it back, somehow, before his burial.
All the best,
I heard he had a couple of Richards cues. I’m not 100% though.
I hate to disrupt your thoughts on a final happy resting. But what makes you think that when the lid gets closed your Balabushka, Rolex, diamond pinky ring, etc. will still be there?
I worked with a mortician once. Just sayin'
