(LAKNA) – An Alaskan woman took her husband on one last road trip in an aluminum casket, using ice to keep his body cold.

While she did not break the law, the mortuary has taken custody of the body, The Associated Press reported.

Authorities were called to check out the scene of what's being called a "rolling wake," the AP reported.

The woman put the casket of the 78-year-old man, who died of natural causes, in the truck bed.
