I was poking around for examples of online death notices the other day, and came across this Cleburne News page:
I fully understand the important social role that the obituaries play, both in their original paper format, and in their new online incarnation.
I get why people might like the ability to add comments to an individual obit, it strikes me as a good place for people to leave remembrances and anecdotes.
I still think adding a ‘Thumbs Up’ option is pretty harsh.
What is the ettiquette here? Does a thumbs up mean you like the obituary? Or the death?
This has to be a case of simply reusing a template.
