Icon81 Yolanda King wake

This is BEAUTIFUL!!! She looks so happy & peaceful.

It's amazing that she looks so happy & some people can't even come to work, on a Friday, & crack a smile.

That's the question. I've never seen a body posed outside a casket at a funeral.

It LOOKS like her, though... supposed to be 51 years old. Hm.

I haven't either personally but I do recall my grandparents telling how the wakes were commonly done in the home on the bed. And how at first it squigged me out to know that I had slept in the bed Grampa's Mom was laid out on.

I didn't realize this is supposed to be Dr King's daughter.

That doesn't really look like her to me. Also there was no public viewing so if this is her that means it was at a private viewing and someone close enough to the family to have been there took the picture and then spread it around. I'm not sure how likely that is.
