A potentially complicated question about funeral etiquette behind the cut...

A really good friend of the family and someone my parents took in when he was younger committed suicide in August. For all reasoning in my mind, he was nothing other than a big brother to me. He ex-wife (they had divorced before he died) added me on facebook, and one of her albums were photos from his funeral.
Curious, I clicked and there were a whole bunch of professional pictures of his casket, etc.  Nothing really weird there.  In others, they were glamor-like shots of her with his kids and they all look really, REALLY happy. For example, they're doing a jump shot in one photo and laughing away on a Harley in another. The last picture is her putting a flower on his casket and smiling at the camera.

Now for my question...
Is this tacky as hell?
What she puts on her facebook really isn't any of my business, but what would you think TQC?

I can see wanting to remember the funeral and keeping the memory alive...buuuut, jump shots? Posing next to a casket? Angled glamor shots of her skipping with his three year old?

What I really want to do is comment the album with a piece of my mind, but I might just be reacting to the shock of seeing pictures of what I believe to have been one of the worst days of my life.
