ROCK HILL, S.C. -- Cecil Gilmore is a Rock Hill mortician who will pose you dead as you were in life.

Gilmore Mortuary offers funerals for a small cost. He says that people just can t afford to bury loved ones because so many people are out of work.

You don t have to be over the hill to appreciate Cecil s take on death. Cecil says it is a combination of formaldehyde and flair at a reasonable price in a deadly economy.

Gilmore only props the bodies with the consent of the family.

It doesn t cost you anything extra, he said.

One of Gilmore s unique jobs was remembering a man who passed away in Atlanta.

Once he passed, he wanted to be remembered for basketball. So we sat him up, posed his arm...and put a ball in it and had him looking at a TV screen on the wall, Gilmore said.
