Respectful documentation of the finality of death.

I know the pain of watching a loved one's health decline due to age or illness and also the pain of an unplanned loss due to an accident or unknown health problem. I want to provide a bit of the comfort to ease the pain once they've gone into the great beyond. If you're interested in this free service, please contact me. I provide private and respectful documentation for out of town friends and family or for young ones without the ability to remember the deceased. Historically, photos of the deceased often were the only representation of a loved one due to financial difficulty. Great care was taken to capture the deceased in an attractive way. I can create a digital tintype of the departed if you so desire.  

Curious what Post Mortem photography looked like? http://www.thanatos.net/
