Couple Gets Married at Uncle's Funeral

Reggie Wade and Monique McMillian Get Married At Uncle's Funeral

In a very unusual ceremony, Reggie Wade and girlfriend Monique McMillian of West Philly, were recently married during the funeral of Reggie's uncle, who was recently gunned down. His uncle, Gregory Scott, had promised to walk Monique down the aisle, since her own father also died years ago. To keep on his promise, the two decided to honor the promise that Scott had made and combine their wedding with his funeral.

Wade commented, "This was the last time his presence was gonna be here with us, and he promised me. "It's like I got to live up to my word. We never lie to each other." Scott’s widow, Alfreda Johnson-Scott was in full support of the funeral/wedding, and nearly 2,000 attended the funeral and participated in a funeral procession that closed four blocks.
