Brenda, I agree with you. I organize my class reunions. We always list the deceased but the way you mention. I like to include a reference to our deceased classmates because they were part of the class and I want others to know they've died. I think most classes do that.Originally posted by Tomahawk Leader:

To the Planners of the 20th THS Class Reunion:
I am the mother of Anthony Poterala, a graduate of the Class of 1987. It was insensitive and in very poor taste to list his occupation as "deceased."
If it were absolutely necessary to list the "deceased" young men from the THS Class of 1987, a paragraph could have preceded the list. It could have said, "Sadly, Anthony Poterala, and, and, and have passed away and are no longer with us. There should have been a small written memorial.
