Re: need help for my Grandma
It is normal for the eyes and mouth of the person to be open when they die...and that is because the moment you die you loose control of all your muscles there is no ability anymore for the person to close the eye or mouth so it opens. You never see this in any of the movies or TV shows because it is a more pleasant scene if the person looks calm and asleep...it is not a correct portrayal of death. All the muscles in the body relax at death... They also loose control of bowel and bladder. I am sorry that your grandma is fixated on the face and I suspect no matter what you say about it she will always see in her mind what her impression was at his death...she will carry that image to her grave as well. Just tell her that you are sorry she had to see that and that you understand it is a gut wrenching thing to have to go through. Perhaps time will lessen that raw feeling she has right now.
