Cork family parts with Titanic victim's message in a bottle

Titanic victim Jeremiah Burke, 19, from Glanmire in Cork was given a Holy Water bottle at the quayside in Cobh by his mother before he set off for the US. As the Titanic sank in the early hours of 15 April, 1912, he threw the bottle and message into the sea. The bottle was washed ashore a year later in Dunkettle, only a few miles from his family home. The note, which read "From Titanic, goodbye all, Burke of Glanmire, Cork" has remained in the Burke family for nearly a century.

Well...this is a creepy post mortem! Some other pinners say the young boy is deceased too, but I don't think so. The boy is terrified! Imagine you are this little innocent boy and you should pose with a dead grandmother who looks to be just digged up again. Ieeeeeuw and yikes!

At first glance this could be any normal photograph of girls together on a sofa, but the one on the left is dead. Her sister has been dressed in an identical dress and asked to cosy up to the dead girl. She actually looks reasonably comfortable with the situation – after all, it’s just her sister. You can see that a book has been used to prop up the dead girl. Such a sad photo..
