    Wow. This is touching. It happened to me too. But I did not unfriend this person.

    My dad Andries Botha passed away this month a year ago (22nd to be exact). I had access to his Facebook account as I helped him and Willem Krog with social traction for their new Venison Recipe Book (LekkerWild). This allowed me to reach out to more of his friends after he died to share memorial details, memories and messages. It also allowed me to re-design his page as a memorial to his life. Recently, I returned to the page to change access details for LekkerWild (to hand over to Willem). While there, I unthinkingly ‘Liked’ a friend of his’ post and realised instantly how eerie that must be. I didn’t know how to notify Facebook and what would happen to his page (as FB settings can get quite cunbersom) until reading this article by Stephanie (coincidentally an old art school friend of my sister Anita!) So, at yet another family funeral on Thursday, I will discuss what to do about my Dad’s account with the family and act accirdingly. Thanks for this, Steph!
