Having experienced grief on the passing of family members at various times, I agree that the Lord is indeed close to the brokenhearted but what purpose does it serve (other than to comfort the grieving) to show photos to someone who is asleep? See Ecclesiastes 9:5 and John 11:11-14. There are several other biblical references.
I imagine that it is a sense of comfort to the grieving person. The feeling of sharing pictures of their legacy may help them. Each person has their own unique ways of comfort. Hope that helps some. God bless!
Yes, that’s why I said in parenthesis, “other than to comfort the grieving”.
