Man's Dying Wish... To Be Buried With Cheese Steaks!

A Pennsylvania man got his dying last wish.

He was buried with two cheese steaks from Pat's King of Steaks in Philadelphia.

Richard Lussi always joked he didn't want to enter the afterlife on an empty stomach. His grandson says his grandfather got his wish without onions because Lussi says "they'll come back to haunt me."

The 76-year-old father of four died of heart complications last month. Pat's owner, Frank Olivieri Jr., says he's flattered and taken aback by someone choosing to be buried with his sandwiches.
