    It skeeves me out personally, but photographing the dead is an established part of ones culture for a lot of people, so I'm not going to judge those who do it.

    My aunt did it at her son's funeral and raised a lot of eyebrows. He was only 5 when he died. She went nuts.

    Take pictures of people while they are alive. Also, tell them you love them while they are alive. That way, they can smile for both.

    No need for a photo as the picture of them lying there is forever branded in my mind.

    I hate funerals. Not only would I never take a picture of somebody in a coffin, I do not like to look at dead people. I think its a weird custom to sit in a room with a dead body during those calling hours.

    I've never seen anyone at a funeral home taking pictures of the deceased but I know they did it in some areas during the 1800's. Of course, they also took pictures of dead outlaws and today television occasionally shows real pictures where you can see some of the dead. Remember footage of the 2004 Tsunami, for example?

    I would much rather remember the person as they were in life, not death...death is cold and harsh.

    That is just kind of weird to me...I think that it would be better to remember someone and have pictures of them while they were still alive rather than just dead...

    omg my friend had pictures of her dead grandma
    ...in her coffin
    ...at her funeral....
    ON HER MYSPACE!! IN HER "MY PHOTOS" ALBUM!!
    to me that is just really weird....and creepy *shudders*

    There is like one pic of me in my house that my mom has up, and maybe one in her wallet of when I was 5. We don't have ANY photo albums of any kind, anywhere...

    My mom used to do this. It is creepy in my opinion. I think she does it to remember. She really freaks out at these things.

    No, but one time when we were exploring what we called haunted houses, I found one on the floor. It was really, really dark in the shack like house. Freaky.

    That is kind of morbid. I want to remember the person on how they were, not how they were when they died.

    I have never done it and wouldn't consider doing it. However I know people who have taken pictures of their dead and I personnaly find it gross. Why take a picture of dead flesh with no soul left in it? The person isn't there anymore and it's kinda creepy.

    I don't like taking pictures of dead people but when my dad passed away, he'd been sick. He was really frail and thin and pasty. He looked so good again in the casket so I took pictures so I could remember him looking like "dad" again; not the sick man he was prior.
