Dec. 2 (UPI) -- During an episode of TLC’s new show, Best Funeral Ever, the family of bowling-lover Judy Sunday holds her funeral at a bowling alley with a little help from the Golden Gate Funeral Home in Dallas, Texas.

During the funeral, Sunday’s name was written on bowling pins and her family even bowled her casket down the lane.

"We believe a family member's passing is a time to celebrate their life, not mourn their death,” said Golden Gate Funeral Home owner John Beckwith Jr.

The episode of Best Funeral Ever showcasing Sunday’s services will debut on Monday, Dec. 2 at 10 p.m.

Here’s what TLC had to say about the unorthodox funeral:

“In life, Judy was a bowler. In passing, she will be remembered in the same fashion as her family sends her casket down the lane for one final strike.”
