Famous Endings

John Herzig's Famous Endings is the largest collection of famous funeral memorabilia. It has been featured in Ripleys. It is located at the Toland-Herzig Funeral Home in Dover.

[Linda Ridgeway, 10/20/2008]

A lot of the collection is comprised of programs, prayer cards, memorial folders, photos, and there are some quirky memorial souvenirs, such as the futuristic flashlight handed out at the services for James "Scotty" Doohan, and a Rodney Dangerfield cartoon cookie.
