Yes.

She was like family.

Not exactly, but I still have a friend request from an uncle who died. I don't want to delete it, but I also don't want a message popping up somewhere saying. "you and dead uncle are now friends".

Yea. He was my best friend since kindergarten. Healthy 23 year old died of fucking pneumonia/staph in the icu. Almost four years ago now.

Yeah. He was a very nice young man that I used to shoot the breeze with about sports mainly (both huge Red Wings fans) at work with.

He ran a half marathon in Detroit on thanksgiving 6 or 7 years ago, crossed the finish line and dropped over dead. He had a undetected heart problem. His family set up a foundation in his memory to help other kids get their hearts checked before playing sports.

I like that quote.

As to the OP's question, yes.  Two childhood friends who passed away in the last few years.

Just had a friend from HS over dose on heroin two days ago.

He was 27, good job, good family. Bam, dead.

Nasty stuff.

No friends but I do still have a friend request from one of my classmates.  She died from a drug overdose about 2 years ago.  I never did accept her friend request, really don't know why.

One of my best friends from the army, passed right after we ETSd.

Yeah.

No real reason to keep them or delete them. I don't really care that much to be honest.

Herion overdose is the one I know for sure is dead...I don't go on their often.

Yeah. I had one work friend die from stomach cancer. Really good dude. About a year later his work phone made it back out into circulation with a new hire. Needless to say i was very surprised to see his name pop up on my phone when the new hire called me.

I am friends with a lady (never met her) who died suddenly. I found out because someone posted a message on her page. Her page is still active. It's weird, still getting a "wish her a happy birthday" message every year.

Similar to that, I met up with a lot of my FB friends from a group I belong to. We had a meetup at a local restaurant. One woman I was introduced to at the meetup died a few weeks later from a heart attack. I took a lot of pics from the meetup to share with the group. It was strange to see her in the pics, not knowing she had only a few weeks left to live.

Yes. Why am I still friended to him? He was a good man, it helps in remembering - and he passed away [from brain cancer at age 42] after I had friended him. His widow posts updates remembering him and includes pictures of their now 3 year old son from time to time.
Link Posted: 12/17/2016 10:40:14 AM EDT

Yes.

My mom's three accounts (she'd forget her password). She passed 8/1/15 at 54, and a friend I've known since 4th grade. I truly believe I was the last person to speak with her.

I still have those two and at least one deceased grandparent in my phone list.

Yes, because Jesus might be letting them check their FB from time to time.  You never know really.  Or they might not be dead.  They might have runofft to  Bora Boda.

A classmate died from a bad reaction to prescribed medicine. 100% accidental. I kept her on my Facebook for a year after her death but felt bad seeing the sad posts and moved on. She had a REALLY tough life. Her brother raped her when she was 14 and she had his kid. She got picked on relentlessly for being homely. Sas always "sickly", etc. The hits just kept coming. Still, she always managed to stay above it, and kept right on smiling. She gave kindness without hesitation to people who had spent years being cruel to her.

She was a better person than most, and the world is less without her in it.

i disagree.   with the facebook platform enabled you can get random likes from someone who can't login to FB anymore..  every evening i would see Michelob beer ad likes from him

he committed suicide and continued to post until i decided to remove him <img src=http://www.ar15.com/images/smilies/icon_smile_dissapprove.gif border=0 align=middle>

every time i saw those posts i became depressed and thought about the circumstances... removing him helped me get over his death and move on with my life

Sorry :( I didn't think about that. For some reason I don't see anything like that. I can see why that would mentally mess you up.

I think you can change the settings generally so you don't see things someone liked etc.  The birthday reminders would still be hard though but again I don't see them.

I only go on mobile and when I do I just scroll through the news feed a bit... who knows.
Link Posted: 12/17/2016 10:45:01 AM EDT

Yep.  I'll see his name now and then in my friends list and it brings back great memories of him.  Deleting him would seem, I dunno...as if I'm saying "I don't want you in my life anymore".
Link Posted: 12/17/2016 10:45:23 AM EDT
[#30]
No. I don't really want constant reminders. Just makes me feel guilty. Doesn't matter how they died, I always feel like I should have or could have done something different to make their life better. That sort of guilt only makes stuff worse for the living.

Just 1 that I know of. He was killed on his bike by a driver who had her head up her ass. She essentially got away with it, the  punishment didnt match the crime.

My wife also. She never had a facebook account, but I made one with a short message and a link to the memorial site I made for her. I set it up like that to make it easy for her old friends/acquaintances from other states we've lived in who aren't aware she died and may be trying to find her.
