This beautiful model was killed in a high-speed BMW crash outside Sofia on July 16, 2013. His brain was extracted on his birthday and he had an open casket the next day.
Before the funeral his parents were given tranquilizers because they couldn't stand on their feet. In total five white caskets were laid out in a small town square next to each other.
A day before he was killed Stenly, 19 received a letter that he got his dream job that he had been hoping to get for months. Sadly, he never got word that a letter has arrived.
His parents delayed it until his birthway and were happy waiting for him at home getting ready to throw a huge party and the letter was supposed to be his birthday surprise along with other presents.
The dead dude was given food during the funeral: A huge bread wrapped in nylon with candle on top and boiled wheat called koliva. Honey was also served.
Orthodox Christians consider koliva to be the symbolic of death and resurrection.
The food is consumed after the corpse is buried. Funeral customs here are horrific. When I was a kid I refused to eat at funerals and old ladies hated me for being different.
As of 2012 I nibble at funerals but I don't understand why this is done and don't accept it.
If I croak before my parents they will bring me bread and wheat and put next to my casket, can you imagine? Pic is proof.
