would you take a casket photo of a loved one?
I wouldn't care to preserve a memory of that.
No, its fucking creepy. Pretty prevalent 50-60 years ago, My great grandmother had a photo album full of wedding photos and funeral photos.
No. I didn't want to see my father in casket, let alone take a picture for memories. I was sort of glad my Grandmother wanted to be cremated.
The whole wake and viewing thing isn't for me.
fucked up, right...my father did it with both of his folks & just threw the photos in a keepsake chest. i just don't get it.
We just buried an uncle this spring and another uncle, who is a complete hippie-draft-dodging-loser, felt the need to capture the entire viewing and funeral on camera. It was beyond morbid and disrespectful.
I also hate when people comment about how "great" the deceased look in the casket.
Wrong. If you've got an important person you're seeing in a casket, I'm sure you've got plenty of other pictures of them - better pictures - while they were living.
Don't get me wrong - celeb photos like this are kinda interesting (still creepy but whatevs...), but family....nope.
Idk....call me weird but that doesn't freak me out although I'm no fan of wakes and avoid them whenever I can
Well, they do have closed casket wakes.
Haven't taken any, but have been in plenty....
...my mom passed about 6 months ago now. my brother tried to keep all the funeral information and invites(?) to his friends and family (ex wife and kids) to himself, even lied and said he didnt have the death certificate yet. truth is the certificate went with her from hospice to the funeral home. for a lot of reasons i wasnt there but my kids and grand kids were there representing for me and my sister who unexpectedly walked in to the church. idk wtf my brother was thinking but it turned into a surprise party for him. and no i didnt request any pics of anything.
This was very common around the turn of the century. People used to have the kids pose next to a dead sibling. How creepy was that?
<<<<<< waiting for the picks of thugs laid out wearing their finest basketball jerseys while their mammys in the background all wear shirts with a graduation pic of the dead with RIP on it.
Is your avy a "loved one"? Seriously, hot and sexy though. Any idea who she?
I've been in those kind of photos. At my grandmothers funeral, all the grandchildren lined up in front of her casket to take a photo.... I've honestly never put much thought into it until now lol.
No, wakes are awfully solemn. I know people who have taken pics. and it is usually to show relatives what the deceased looked like in state, when someone could not attend.
