Our committee has decided that only classmates should display on the In Memory page. Is there a way to mark a Guest as deceased but not create an In Memory entry? We have posted the obit in his profile.

Unfortunately, no. If they are marked as deceased, they will show on the In Memory page. I suppose you could fake it and add a double asterisk ** after their last name and via Manage Classmates and then add their obit to their profile.

Tried that. In fact, that's what I ended up doing.
But for some reason, the site will not display a double asterisk when added in the name fields. It will display if you add asterisk-space-asterisk though.

Scott, will this 'option' be considered for the future?

Seems practical to me, but may be logistically impossible.

Edited Portion - I do the same as Ken does below - make administrators and teachers guests, then make the In Memory addition, posting their obit.

I have two thoughts on this: 1) If there is good reason to add someone as a guest and they were interacting with others, they are just as deserving to be In Memory. 2) If a guest is not interacting, the profile can be moved to classmate and not shown on list.

I will be checking each site I maintain to see who I have as guests. I would rather remove them now rather than not give them the respect I feel they deserve at passing.

I agree with Gwen. Actually, when one of our teachers pass, I make them a guest member, then create their In Memory notice. Ken
