Should I unfriend a dead person?

A person whom I knew for 9 years has passed on. Should I unfriend him on fb and delete his conact number? Does that make me cold? Am i weird if i keep it? people keep posting condolesence messages and tagging that person and it makes me feel sad but i dont want to lose the only link i have got that remains of that person.

  • i can understand why u want to do this. it doesn't make u cold. if it makes u that sad, best to unfriend and try to move on. if you feel you can cope with the memory of that person and the messages ur being tagged in, then it's nice to allow his memory to live on, especially if u were any kind of close. it's your call.

  • You can do as you please. I had a friend die in a car wreck one day before Thanksgiving and I kept her as a friend for about 6 weeks so I could see the grieving posts of her other friends. When I felt I had seen enough, I unfriended her account. I still remember her, I don't need Facebook to do that. In fact, I no longer even have that FB account. Got tired of the entire platform. If you want to unfriend the account, you can screenshot or save the page as a file so you can refer back to it if you feel the need. But no, it doesn't make you a cold person. Everyone deals with death in their own way And as long as you're doing no harm, there is no wrong way. Please accept my condolences for your loss. :-(

  • I don't think it's a bad thing if you delete someone as a friend on Facebook that has passed. Some people have a difficult finding closure, so they either get rid of everything or hold on to it all.

    Personally, I wouldn't delete someone who has died, but then again, I don't even use my Facebook. I would save pictures of the person and just have a keepsake to look at when I think about him/her.

  • If you want to then go for it. It's not like it's bad and maybe it will help you move on.

  • If you want to. I don't think it's cold or anything if it helps you emotionally. I had a family member who passed away a while ago and I had to delete his contact number. I just couldn't look at it.

  • It's hard to be friends with dead people. I had a dead friend for awhile, but I finally had to tell him it just wasn't working out. He couldn't hold on to a job, and I ended paying for everything. I literally had to carry him everywhere we went, and nothing I did seemed to make him happy. Just end it.

  • Why don't you just turn off their message notifications? or, even better, actually accept your grief and deal with it instead of shoving it into the depths of your mind?

  • Could you mute the comments from their profile, but still keep them added?

  • Doesn't really make a big difference... But what's the point of unfriending them?
