Hmmmm, I find it difficult to accept this argument. Where do you draw the line? Will Jack's siblings be okay with grandma holding Jack and sharing it with the rest of the world? I am all for creating awareness regarding this issue but there's a line to be drawn somewhere. If someone I knew were taking pictures of me grieving my son or taking an image of me holding my dead grandson in a hospital blanket and then sharing it I would feel exploited and feel as though my child would be exploited as well. Describing it in words is one thing. Displaying pictures of these intimate moments is in my opinion not the way to best honor a life. How one acts and what one shares might feel okay in the moment but might not feel right as the mourning process continues. I wish someone would have saved the family from making that mistake while they might not be able to make that decision themselves.
