I do, a Marine that passed overseas. I hope his page is always there, it's very comforting to us all.

A friend who died last week, a woman I had known 40+ years & lived with for some years. She hadn't used her FB page for a long time but now there are posts about her from other friends, people I don't even know, & it's nice to read what they wrote.

A former gunnery sergeant of mine. He passed away from a brain tumor. His sister runs his Facebook page.

Nice. I hope that my family maintains my page after I'm gone.

How long of an ammount of time do you think is appropriate before removed, or do you want to be on facebook eternally? Seems like it might become a burden rather than a helpful grieving tool.

Good question, I like the idea of maintaining it forever. Imagine if you could go back and view the life and interests of a grandparent in this way. Plus it's an opportunity for others to leave tribute and connect friends and family.

When my Grandfather died we found a journal he had maintained for a few years around the time he met my grandmother. It was fascinating to read his daily perspectives on life.
