There are still a lot of newspapers in print as well as online.
People move around a lot so some of your friends may not be local. Two of my best friends passed away this past year. You regret not taking time to pay them a visit.

Since many of these are Entertainers ~ it might be nice to contain those in the LAIR.
Seems appropriate to me and respectful of their past in an area dedicated to such.
However, seems EVERYBODY puts EVERYTHING in the Lounge.
Now the funeral directors on the forum will have nothing to do..
The key to enforcement is to punish the violator, not an inanimate object. The punishment of inanimate objects for the commission of a crime or carelessness is an affront to stupidity.

It is always interesting to read obituaries that summarize the person's work history. There are some great people that got little recognition for what they did in life.
I worked with a guy that claimed he was responsible for the internet there by stealing Al Gore's thunder.
The obits in Time Magazine were amazing. Richard Corliss could really write. Sadly he is now deceased. Here is a sample:
Jerry Garcia: The Trip Ends
“Most Dead fans have not turned themselves into career pilgrims. They go to Dead shows for good music and a great time. The older among them were kids of Garcia’s generation, and in the ’60s they enjoyed watching him living out their adolescent dream of cool: playing guitar, traveling the world, doing dope. Then, as these Boomers faced up to middle age—working hard and working out, with only the occasional nostalgic joint at a Dead show—they could also see Garcia mature and decay. They were Dorian Gray, and he was the picture. His belly ballooned; his skin was looser; his hair turned a ratty touch of gray. He looked as if he existed on peanut butter and peyote buttons.
If life is indeed a song, then Garcia and most of his older fans played it in different styles: studio version and free-form concert improv. Because the fans learned to play life straight, they will get by. Because he saw life as a long jam session leading to harmony or anarchy, he died—long after he might have, long before he should have. But as a force for good music and good vibes, Garcia can go to heaven and keep on truckin’. Like the song says, he will survive.”
