Friends that passed away


Shared on Tue, 04/26/2016 - 08:24

So over the past few years I've had some friends pass away from various things but I still have them on my facebook friends list. I was  thinking the other day should I take them off the list ? I'm kinda at odds with that cause I can't talk to them like that anymore and going to their pages just to stare at the pictures just seems very weird in a sense. I'm not the type of person to go visit a cemetery to see friends I've always just remembered them and spoken about with others, so is wrong for me to remove them from my friends list? For the record growing up and getting older sucks sometimes

I'm still throwing this around in my head maybe I'll just let it be for a long while . I guess it's not something to make a quick decision on

That is a tough one, and I don`t know what the answer is for you.

I still have them on my friends list, just can`t justify removing them. Because if I do and change my mind down the road, they will not be able to accept a friend request and all is lost. Put them in a different friends list. (just don`t call it deceased, it could look weird).

Got a new phone last year and  transferred my numbers over, the misses asked why I kept numbers for friends who had passed, an all I could say was "cause their my mates".

That's what I'm thinking I can't add them back once I delete them

I have a similar situation with friended gamer tags. When I come across an old (deceased) friends GT, I think about them for a moment. It usually makes me feel good to honour them in this small way.

Eventually I won't remember who they were and delete them. I guess that's okay too.
