Boxer Tommy Morrison’s parents and family will reportedly hold a service for the former Kansas City pugilist and Rocky V star on October 12th in Sulfur Springs, Arkansas.
The $64 million question being, will Morrison’s fam be allotted any of his ashes for their more traditional sendoff.
Here’s the deal.
Morrison’s widow announced plans last week for an unusual “service” involving a multi city tour and boxing glove necklaces filled with his ashes for those close to him.
Contrary to the more subdued ceremony other members of his family are thought to prefer.
Now the latest from widow Trisha Morrison‘s spokesman, a sports blogger from New York by the name of Darren Barcomb:
“Tommy has been cremated,” Barcomb emails. “Information will follow regarding the exact dates and locations of the memorial celebrations of his life. This is how Tommy wanted it to be done and Trisha will carry out those wishes. I know this has been a sensitive issue for others in Tommy’s family and I do feel for their wishes as well… But in the end The Duke chose his final resting plans.”
There you have it.
