I have added faculty as Guest Members, but I have no idea how to add deceased faculty to my Memory page. Help!

1) Click Edit Site Pages
2) Click the Edit button next to your In Memory page
3) From the dropdown list select the deceased Guest
4) Create your writeup as you see fit, and save.

On your In Memory page your Guests will automatically be categorized under a Guests heading.

I have a caution for any Class Creator moderators. One of my "peeps" is a former cemetery worker and he really held me accountable for verifying each and every obituary (by talking to a personal family member of the deceased or copying and pasting the actual obituary onto our site). He said it is common for people to think someone died when it was actually a relative. THIS happened multiple times in our class searches for classmates. If I had NOT heeded his advice, we would have shaken up much of the class by reporting people dead when they're actually alive. What's worse, THOSE "dead" people would have showed up at the reunion! Also, be very discreet about printing WHAT a person died of unless the family gives permission. It is sometimes a sensitive issue with the family.
