Country music singer Jimmy Dean, who passed away on Sunday, will be buried in a $350,000 piano-shaped granite mausoleum.

He purchased the 9-and-a-half-foot long tomb located near the banks of the James River years ago.

The mausoleum is a reference to his 1961 hit Big Bad John. The epitaph will read, "Here lies one hell of a man."

The funeral is set for Monday at the Grove Avenue Baptist Church in Richmond, Virginia.

    Love this guy! And for all the haters - he's been very generous to others in Richmond, VA, so leave his silly coffin alone.

    Yeah, Perez, what about those accusations that you've been distributing child pornography? You do know that even 'photoshopped' child porn is illegal, right? And, you got it wrong in your statement when you said you don't want to go to jail. You wouldn't be going to jail. You'd be going to prison, and not for a few years. For over a decade. You do realize how much time that is for people out here to forget all about you and your act, right? You'd come out a lot more respectful of others. You'd have to muster your full courage just to make eye contact with strangers, fearing that they might remember why you've been away for so long. Imagine that, huh? A random stranger recognizes you in a club, or in a shop, and cries "Pedophile!" You've sunk beneath every low you've set for yourself, Perez. Time to grow up. You're not a teenaged boy anymore. What are you, forty-ish now?

    Oddly enuf, he looks a lot like actor James Dean in that pic! Too bad that the other "Jimmy Dean" didn't live as long! And I do like the flavor of J's pork sausage, God rest his sou!
