Cute video! "Waking" the dead at home was still occasionally being done when I was a child. In fact, I was taken to the wake of one of my mother's uncles, right there in his living room. That's the sort of memory that never fades <:)
I remember those stories too; in my smalltown Ohio family, they were also only one generation back...I WAS in my beloved Grandma's house, when she passed away in a bed in the living room. She'd been released from the hospital that day, for just that purpose.
