I have 271 friends on Facebook and one of them is dead.
It still freaks me out whenever I see him on the left side of the screen of my profile, where Facebook shows you a few of your friends. But every time I see him there I have to click on his profile and it breaks my heart a little bit to see the loving posts still accumulating on his wall, especially from his girlfriend.
I don't know what I would do or how I would react if someone I loved died suddenly but an online presence remained, always there somewhere, reminding me of happier times.
It really is a heartbreaking thought.
