Not a picture that should have been published before the family was notified, if ever at all. The comment that he had been dead more than 4 days is a little odd. I do agree however that if you have to go it may as well be doing what you love. Sincerest condolences to Manfreds family

Kids see worse than that before they get their jammies off and fill their gob with Fruit Loops. Kids love to poke dead stuff with sticks.

I was 4 when I saw my first floater fished out of the drink. Been in a while. Looked worse than that. Life.

I guess once he stiffened up it kind of lodged him in there.

Not for me thank you. I am way to social a person to want to be alone for that many years. I want my wife, kids, and future grandkids around. All I could think of was how sad it was that he died alone. Of course, he likely was a very non-social person which is why he was out there alone for all those years anyway.
