A letter was read this week from the platform stating that publishers should not scour the obituaries and respond to the websites for condolences messaging. Apparently, it is not being taken too well by family and friends and the pubs are asked to REFRAIN from sending a message IF they are not friends or family of the deceased.
I recall one sister used to visit grave yard sites and if she saw individuals there, went over and "consoled" them by offering the tract on Death and Your Loved Ones. I cannot even think of how I would have received her, being in my space and thinking she could do that.
Apparently they have graduated by reading the obits.
