What would you do if somebody posed for a selfie with a relative’s body at their funeral?
When Gemma Williams did it with 21-year-old music producer Michael Dene Ray’s body at his funeral, his family reacted with horror.
After placing a friendship bracelet on Michael Dene’s wrist, she snapped a photo of his hand next to hers and then posted it as a tribute to the man on Facebook.
Williams did eventually pull the photo from her Facebook profile after multiple family members requested that she take it down, however she doesn’t understand why so many were disgusted by her desire to pay homage to her friend, especially since the photo received multiple “likes” online.
Williams also transferred the photo to a t-shirt, a fact that the family also takes issue with.
