I had a friends father who passed away while I was in college my mother insisted on taking pictures at his funeral. I really felt it was disrespectful and was irritated the entire time

This is always so strange to me. I don’t know why anyone would ever do that. And then post pictures on facebook at that. Just disturbing.

I think its a cultural thing. I think its strange and maybe even disrespectful, but I have had more than one friend who had pictures of family members posing with the deceased and some of them even smiling! For some, a funeral is as much of a celebration as a wedding is, so you take pictures of it like you would at any celebration

@Daizy914:  I understand having those photos for your personal refelction of life and those who have passed, but on FB? Come on people, have some class!

@Daizy914:  I’ve seen someones profile pic with a group of people around a man on life support in his hospital bed. His eyes are closed and he looks like he is in a coma? If that were me in that bed I wouldn’t want people taking pictures and posting them on FB!

I mean….taking pictures of family members that you haven’t seen in a long time and the funeral brought you all together, yeah. But pictures of the dead?!!! WTF.

I feel weird that I can one up this in a way. 

My sister was unable to make it to my grandmother’s funeral, so my Dad had an iPad and face timed (like Skype) her during the viewing, walking around, putting the ipad in peoples faces, showing my sister the flowers and the open casket etc. For the whole viewing!! Who does that 😉

There was a time in the past where this was a common thing to do. It happened at my grandfather’s funeral (first time I saw it in person). I found it a bit strange, but people cope differently. To each their own…


but on facebook? That’s not necessary. imo.
