She said that the viewing was "open casket."
Yeah. Are you thinking what I'm thinking?
That somehow they reattached his head during the embalming? Or rested it on the pillow with the neck somehow disguised?
The casket held a HEADLESS corpse. With a scarf where his head should have been.
As if there weren't other, less gruesome, less traumatic options? Like closing the casket or cremation? Geez. WTF is wrong with these people?
