Dead People Get Life-Like Poses at Their Funerals

This is tasteless. There should be a certain amount of decorum and class exhibited. But funeral parlors will do anything for an extra buck. I'm sure these morbid waste of money displays costs plenty too. Another example of how low can you go. Gluttony to the bitter end. Apparently these people don't care about the cost or that the funds could go to help the living.
