While I probably share more about my own life on this blog than my
mother feels comfortable about you care to know, I'm still very slow to leave a public condolense to someone who has lost a loved one on a Facebook wall. This blog is mine; someone's Facebook wall is theirs. It's not so much the casual nature of it for me, but the issue of privacy for mourners. I simply think if someone hasn't mentioned their loss on their Facebook page, no one else should mention it, either - not by leaving a thoughtful wall message, not by asking for a specific prayer request in one's own status update. Maybe it's because I'm Southern, maybe it's because I'm behind the times, but mostly it's because I think someone else's loss is just not your business. Do you do it? Has this happened to you when you wish it hadn't? I would love to hear your thougths on this topic, which I've blogged more about over at DC Ladies....
