I took a couple of my mom. I have no idea why i did that looking back. At the time I thought nothing of it and felt I needed the pic. I just walked right up with my old insta polaroid and click, whirrrrr, bzzz. No wonder people looked at me funny. Im glad I have the pic..sorta...but Id never do that again. Age makes ya smarter
When my mom died, the funeral director handed me a laminated program of the funeral and inside were two pictures of my mother in the casket. I thought that was rather odd, but it was the first funeral I had arranged so I had no idea if this was SOP or not. I hadn't taken any pictures and had no desire to have them.
