Patrick, I agree with you 100%. My friends 11 year old daughter was killed in a automobile accident and we were at the trauma center after she was pronounced dead from her injuries. I remember seeing her body, her face and arms were shattered from the impact. I was shocked to learn later that it was to be an open casket viewing. When I walked up to view her at the service, I was preparing myself for that same horrible sight. I was absolutely stunned when I looked at her! The massive injuries to her face were no longer visible. She looked completely unscathed. I don't know how this illusion was achieved, but I'm very thankful that was the "memory picture" and not what I saw at the hospital. It was very comforting for her family and myself to see her intact with no visible injuries and looking totally peaceful.
