Morbid...

I don't want to even think of what it must feel like to lose a child, but this struck me as a little disturbing.

I found this site, http://www.phojoe.com/forensic_compositing.html, that does digital age progression.

Now, I can understand using this technology to help law enforcement envision what missing children might look like today but from what I can tell, a large number of this site's customers are using it to make family portraits of their deceased children.

Does that strike anyone as odd?

I can empathize with all the unanswered questions losing a young child must pose but would you EVER hang a "Sears Quality" portrait of what your dead child would look like now on your wall?

"There's Aunt Milly. And that one on the left is a baby photo of my mom. And next to her is Timmy's high school graduation photo - you know, if he had lived..."

Very odd.

Check out the "teenage" photo of Jon Benet Ramsey. Chilling.
