I have three of them. The hand does not rise to remove them. I often go to their pages, read, remember. There are many photographs, thoughts, feelings. I deleted one page, but this is an accidental acquaintance from the network.
My friend ... but what's really there, my Dante love, with which I couldn't explain myself due to my youth, stupidity and coincidence, died a few years ago. She still has an account on social networks. I cannot come to the grave; I don’t know where she is. And is the mortal body so important. But people come to the gravestones of their loved ones, even if the stone is just a symbol. How, then, is an account different from a stone tombstone? No, of course not. The wife knows.
I have a deceased friend, and I am not deleting him. I will say more, we still correspond sometimes. Well, that is, I suppose that one of our mutual acquaintances just knows the username and password, but why would I require someone to confess something if I can congratulate the deceased on his birthday and get a "thank you" , brother "?
To each his own. My VK friends have accounts of two classmates and one friend. They died tragically in different years. I just don't want to delete their accounts, because it's a memory. You can always go to their pages, listen to their audio recordings, watch their videos, read their thoughts and correspondence.
