Or rather, people in my email address book who have passed away. One of my email buddies crossed the divide. ki0qd won't be broadcasting any more.
Once in a blue moon, I'll go through the list and clean it up a bit. If I've not heard from someone in several years, I assume that maybe, just maybe, they aren't all that interested in hearing from me. So, I'll delete their entries. Or sometimes, it's a married couple sharing an address, and they aren't enjoying marital bliss much these days, so the addy is more than likely unattended.
However, going through my list, I find that I've got several addresses of married couples where the husband has left behind a widow, who still uses that address. I don't edit the listings - they still say John and Jane Doe rather than just Jane Doe.
Then there are the ones who are out right not with us anymore. The address is abandoned - gradually filling up until the mail bounces. These are the ones that kinda bother me. I don't email anything to 'em, but I can't seem to edit them out of my address book. It's my little way of remembering these people - I guess I'm afraid I might more easily forget them if I consider them extraneous data. Keeping their addresses honors their memory for me.
So, am I some sort of weirdo? What do y'all do with your deceased contacts? Surely I'm not the only one who runs into this dilemma.
