Two questions:
1) i know a classmate is deceased, and knew at the 10-yr, when we honored him there. I was never able to dig up any details on his passing. Is it appropriate for me to enter him in to the "In Memory" page without any info? Suggestions on how best to manage this?

2) Two of our classmates are ill. The one that is terminally ill with cancer intends to attend reunion, God-willing. The other has no plans to attend, as he doesn't know what he even has yet. Suggestions on how to honor them at our event?????

thanks in advance for help with these sensitive issues.

I'll let others chime in on #2, but regarding your first question, absolutely enter the Classmate into In Memory. Let Classmates comment. Somebody may have some details or comments they'd like to share. If you don't add the Classmate to the deceased list, then nobody can assist or comment...

It has been my experience to tread lightly when publishing medical conditions of others. I think that before publishing anyone's medical condition you should find out how they feel about their privacy.
