There is some controversy on the General Chat board about how long threads regarding recently deceased members are kept for.

May I suggest that a Memorial or 'In Memoriam' board is offered to current members who wish to remember dearly loved friends from their time on here. This would then provide a place of comfort for those who wish to add thoughts or prayers on anniversaries or special occasions.

This would also serve to keep the other boards for their original purpose.

Yes, I too would like to see a Memorial Board, so that we can remember lost GR members that have meant a lot to us all.

A memorial board would be very respectful for our friends on GR that have passed. Some of them were members on here for years and all lovely people and very much missed.

Agree with all the above please give this suggestion serious consideration, thank you.

GR - please listen to your paying customers. Many of us would appreciate a dedicated board.

Gone but not forgotten.


Joy Report 8 Oct 2015 14:17

Seconded, too.

A sensible idea.

But I'm in no particular rush to witness my own name amongst the deceased list. ;-)

And a reminder for GR
