One of rock’s greatest chapters came to a close as rock legend Vinnie Paul Abbott was laid to rest in Arlington, Texas over the weekend.
Paul, who died on June 22nd from what sources say was “a massive heart attack,” was laid to rest Saturday afternoon in a private ceremony at the Moore Funeral Home in Arlington, close friends and family torn between the joy at having been part of his brilliant life, and the bone deep sorrow of having lost yet another Abbott boy.
A quiet ceremony marked with tears and laughter as loved ones looked back on their favorite memories of the late drummer, Vinnie Paul’s funeral ended with the most bittersweet of moments as his custom KISS casket was lowered down into the ground beside brother ‘Dimebag’ Darrell Abbott – a moment that can only be described as both heartbreaking and extremely comforting.
But why would folks find comfort in something so overwhelmingly sad?
It’s simple: 14 years is too long to spend without your other half.
