    I don't understand how displaying a dead relative/friend like a manikin helps someone grieve, but to each their own I guess.

    The guy on the motorcycle, that's pretty cool. Also, very weird and creepy.

    In the 19th century, people used to have photographs taken of their kids when they died. Pretty macabre, although back then, it's not like they all had cameras and could just take pics of them all the time.

    When my dad died, we had a closed casket, mostly because I couldn't deal. But his relatives all requested some time with him to take pictures. I guess they did it at other viewings, too, my mom said. I've wondered if it's a Deep South thing.

    Hmmmm. You might be right. Most of my family is from Alabama, and when we had my mother's funeral, my aunt wanted to take pictures. I thought it was creepy as hell, but we allowed it.
