EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP, N.J. — A man in New Jersey was loved so much that both his wife and girlfriend placed two different obituaries in the same newspaper.

NJ.com reported that Leroy “Blast” Bill Black died of lung cancer Tuesday at his home at the age of 55.

The Press of Atlantic City printed two obituaries for the man in the same edition of the newspaper on Friday. One was written by his wife, the other by his girlfriend.

One said he is survived by his “loving wife Bearetta Harrison Black” and the other his longtime girlfriend Princess Hall.

The obituaries were put in the paper separately because “the wife wanted it one way and the girlfriend wanted it another way,” according to the Philly Voice.
