We get the kitten, but what is grandma holding and why? Is there a salad bar in heaven?

To me that looks like a Pomeranian, not a kitten.

Maybe she left in her will to be buried with a fork, you know, just for the kicks of messing with her family.

now that people have explained the "keep your fork" thing, I kind of understand why she has it, and I have to say I can appreciate it. and hell, if it was her last dying wish and it wasn`t inappropriate, then let her "have her cake and eat it, too". get it, get it? ahhh, neva mind, lol.

you guys have never heard of the "keep your fork" thing? Like when you`re at your grandmas and she says "hold on to your fork" and you know there`s desert from it... it goes along the same lines, you know.. there`s more to come. There was a joke or something about it.

yeah, because christians (at least baptists that i know) think of your life and afterlife as a meal. they believe that life is the main course but heaven is dessert. the best kinds of dessert (pie/cake) you need a fork to eat. actually if the person really liked ice cream maybe they should be burried with a spoon. it is like people before me have said a way to state "the best is yet to come". its a weird way to state this, and to those who have no idea what its for these people look insane.

Some people get burried with a fork as a way of saying `the best is yet to come`.

Its something to do with always saving a fork after dinner for dessert.

I`m pretty sure that cat is fake. (hopefully) they used to sell these weird fake curled up cats like that in my town.

Thank you Splurt! I heard that story a long long time ago and as soon as I saw the picture, I knew that was why it was there. I love that story and symbolism to it. It`s the very first time I`ve seen someone actually do it though and I had long forgot about it. Thanks IAB for reminding me :)

@Bored2Run- My grandma died about 6 months ago and she had an open casket. All her age spots were visable. Not on her face becasue of how much make up, but on her arms and chest. They don`t always fade. That picture of her laying there like that is burned into my brain. I really miss her. :(

It`s one of those Egyptian traditions, whatever your buried with you get in the after life. She wanted kitten for dinner every night I guess.

Pandabear, not over analyzing, just been to enough funerals and open caskets to know better. And air-brush may be a technique, but it`s not that precise. Also, emballming leaves a cadaver more bloated than this one. You mean to tell me that the family who dressed granma in a Wal-mart shirt paid for a better than most mortician`s dressage? And what mortician takes such strides for details in air brushing to include the coloration of the veins?
Yeah, I`ll see the obvious, you just keep trying to deny it without giving any reasonable examples why I`m wrong.

Ambient lighting will have a lot to do with that colour (the whites in the photo also have a colour cast to them). Plus age spots don`t always disappear when the colour goes - several deceased people I`ve viewed had them on their arms & a couple also had a yellow cast to the skin (due to what they died of).

Airbrush. It explains the coloring and maybe he was feeling creative? I`ve seen dead people that have color. And age spots don`t disappear with make-up, especially if they`re dark. Stop over analyzing.

She`s not dead. See the age spots on her arm? If she were really dead her coloring would be pale white which is why morticians use skin toned make-up for those who`ll be open-casket viewed. I can`t see a mortician spending the amount of time needed to cover all that exposed skin as well as dot in all those spots. Plus the coloring is too good. I could go on and wonder about the strange objects placed with her in the casket, but I`ve been to viewings where people stick stuff in the coffin that represented something closely connected with the deceased.

I swear...if someone chooses the most hideous shirt in my wardrobe to dress me in, then puts a fake rat cat on my chest & cutlery in my hands & a nasty troll doll in my casket when I die...& photographs it...I`m going to do some serious exorcist-type haunting to the people concerned.

By the way.. the cat is fake.. they sell them everywhere in the South. Made of either faux fur or dyed rabbit fur. You can get them for 5 bucks.

Very strange. Although that looks a bit more like a fox or something to me. That would just make it weirder, wouldn`t it.

Perhaps she was reenacting a scene from Stephen King`s "Cat`s Eye" with the troll, fork and cat ...

Or maybe she just liked to eat p.... never mind.

The fork is there because of an old story, here is the link to it http://www.made2smile.com/funpages/fork/...

Either the cat is dead and stuffed or someone put a cat on a dead woman for funsies. D: As far as the fork goes... I dunno. I really don`t know.

Don`t you think it`d be more likely that the cat is dead and they got an old lady statue?

@uncertainty: You pretty much hit it on the head. It`s actually, "Save your fork. The best is yet to come."
This is pretty common in the South, where a lot of churches have potlucks at least one Sunday a month.

I`ve heard the whole fork/spoon thing in open caskets before. It`s supposed to symbolize how heaven is "dessert" and there`s that whole phrase "save your spoon/fork for dessert." I can`t remember the actual metaphor, but that`s the gist of it.

How else is she going to eat the kitten when she rises from the dead? By that time, she won`t have many teeth left.

The fork isn`t really there. However the cat is, which easily still makes it somewhat creepy. "Grandma is dead, someone grab the cat and get the cotton."
