    I will help you though, Don since you are the English teacher, right. But they should only be posted by Vdub or the Big Kahuna.

    We do have the candles on the map as a reminder -- unfortunately there are quite a few candles.

    Edit: I see 7 off-hand; 2 in US, 1 in Canada, 1 in Spain, 1 in UAE, 1 in S. Africa, & 1 in the UK. Am I missing any?

    I'm thinking a sticky with a URL pointing to a web page with a static write-ups on each individual. Something simple (no auto-music, for instance and no animated .gifs), solemn, short... I don't think we would need permission from anyone as long as the content was taken from publicly available sources.
    Agreed. Great idea, it's just the implementation we need to think about. I'm not in a position to set anything up for the next couple of weeks but please keep adding ideas to this thread and we can get something going in early November.

    I think it is a terrific idea. I would think a memorial page for each person with an easy way to link to their posts would be perfect. I would think perhaps one introductory post should be highlighted. Most have a first post that summarizes how they arrived. That could be the highlighted post. the obituary should limited to a certain maximum number of words, and could be written by a family member.

    I remember my sweet dr. Phil all the time on his thread.... with pictures and tears and endless love and sore missing...
    it can be done with others who passed, on the thread that told about their passing, or on the thread in which they told their story, or on one of their best threads...
    it can be done by reading again old posts, which I mostly do now when I come to the Forum...
    honestly, I doubt how many can bear visiting Phil's thread... I am grateful for those who are able too.... "cemetery" is not fun to visit.
    p.s. vdub/ endrew: when my time will come, will you, please put my candle near Phi's ?

    "You are my sunshine", he used to sing to me... "you make me happy, when skies are grey" I still answer him.
    Rest in Peace, my brave Batman and take care of your weggies from heaven, until we meet again.

    only God knows when.... maybe Phil also know now, that he has heavenly wisdom...
    we used to tell Phil things like that....
    tears...
    and... honestly, I don't want to wait many years until I will join my Phil. I miss him every second. each morning is painful to wake up.... I am sorry.
    thank you anyway.

    and thank you andrew for the candle. it means a lot to me.
