Readers of the Atlantic City Press may have thought they saw double when a deceased New Jersey man Tuesday received two obituary entries — one from his wife and one from his girlfriend, reported.

Leroy “Blast” Bill Black died of lung cancer at 55 years of age and both obituaries list similar information except one says he was survived by his “loving wife Bearetta Harrison” Black, and the other says his longtime girlfriend, Princess Hall.

One individual at the Greenidge Funeral Home told the Philly Voice the obituaries were posted separately, because “the wife wanted it one way, and the girlfriend wanted it another way.”
