@ferdinardpo said: “People are free to choose how they remember those special to them. If you do yours privately and another does his publicly it changes nothing the dead individual wouldn’t see or feel either. However, a public show of remembrance of a special person may trigger some emotion beyond that of the person expressing the remembrance especially of a public figure. Even when you go to church for remembrance or hold family gathering it is the same whichever way.”
