A coffin with a grateful message

Suttie Economy, 94, lives in Roanoke, Virginia. He's a WWII veteran and he has never forgotten how (during the war) the Wrigley company stopped selling Spearmint, Doublemint and Juicy Fruit chewing gum to civilians, so that their entire supply went to the military.

He's known famously around Roanoke for giving it away to friends and strangers alike, as part of his mission to remind people about World War II and to honor the veterans who died for our freedom. Recently he announced he'll continue his mission after death, by having his coffin painted like a pack of Wrigley's Juicy Fruit gum.
