To me, taking a photo of a dead person -- especially somebody I love -- seems morbid. If not morbid, then just icky.

This thread caught my eye because David (whose birthday is today) has been gone 2 1/2 months and I saw, for the first time the other day, a picture my daughter had taken of us in the hospital. I was leaning over him giving him a kiss. I remember the moment. I remember my daughter taking the picture. What stunned me is that, in the photo, David's eyes are open and, even though he was very much alive (though in incredible pain and medicated), he looks dead. Really, he looks dead.

I hate to get rid of the very last picture of him, but it makes me sad, so I don't know what to do with it. What would you do?
