Some people want you to know when they have a cold, bad hair day, gout or hemorrhoid flare up. Many of us have seen pictures of wounds, sores, legs in casts, people on ventilators and much more. Many of us have seen a lot of dead bodies on social media. Numerous funerals of people you may have known have appeared on social media. Maybe this works out for people who can’t attend the funeral.

If the deceased person was a private kind of person and would not have appreciated such a public display then the family should honor the deceased ‘s wishes and disposition.
