I work with my father, and at work, we keep a dead people's section, containing pictures of people we knew who have passed away. Does anybody else do this?

I have the obits of close friends and family members, not many mind you. If you're referring to the forums here at MC, then "no". There are a few members who we believe have legitimately passed away, but we also have had at least on faked death that generated a lot of buzz, and then a lot of controversey, as it's very complicated to determine if an actual MC member has passed or not. It's sad really that people get pleasure from faking their deaths and then watch others mourn them, but unfortunately it's real and we have to be careful and sensitive about such situations.

Not only deaths do people fake online, but illness to attract attention. Even if a death or illness is legit and you really don't know the person it's possibly best to not even acknowledge the person making the claim since you don't know if it real.

On the topic of deaths, I always wondered if any Muppet fan has ever created a website of Muppet show guest stars that have passed away with dates of death and cause of death.

Is the memory box in your home or at your workplace?

My father does engineering, but he teaches me all kinds of different job opportunities, such as mechanics, cleaning up, and the like.

Not of anyone save for a man that was in our high school band as a guest musician. He was a local judge, and was one of my favorite people in the 4 years of high school. I loved him dearly, and still miss him. I played in his memorial service, and keep his picture and the "program" from the service out so I can look and remember...

I haven't done that with anyone else I've known who's died. Thankfully it's a small number anyway...
