Family Uses Winking Face Emoji To Announce Grandmother’s Death

Carmen Bustamante Barango had told her children that when she died she wanted to be remembered in the local newspaper, “El Periodico de Catalunya,” with her favorite symbol: a winking face emoji.

After she died at her home in Barcelona at the age of 75, her offspring immediately put her plan into action on behalf of their beloved mother and Grandmother.

“She was a character and a great mother who never stopped being a child,” said her son Roman Zabal. He said his mom communicated with her children via the instant messaging app “WhatsApp,” and that the winking face emoji was her favorite.
