I am the wife of the wonderful man that passed away and found Linda taking pictures of not just him but his hands, flowers etc. In the 15 years he and I were together we never associated with this woman. I was never introduced to her and she made no effort to contact us when he became ill. Linda is friends with his ex-wife and I suspect the pictures were for her. As I said this person was not one of our friends. To anyone who might think this is OK, think again. I still see her taking pictures and I will not forget that image for a long time. If she wanted to take pictures she should have asked. Instead she waited until she thought I was out of the room. Shame on her for her inconsiderate act. I will not be able to forgive her for imposing at such a difficult time.

I am the sister of the wonderful man that passed away. When my sister-in-law had came to me and told me what had just happened, I was sickened that someone that was suppose to be a friend of the family would take pictures of my brother in his casket without asking permission. When Linda was asked to delete them and refused, I was furious. This happened over a month ago and I am still furious over this. People should have more consideration for the grieving family instead of their own wants. Some people are so rude.
