“I’ve heard many people say, ‘I don't wanna make the bereaved even more sad than they are by reminding them of the person’s name.’ I one-hundred-percent guarantee they’re gonna be sad whether or not you say the person’s name. People aren’t gonna make the bereaved sadder. On the contrary, there’s the feeling of, ‘Wow, my person’s being remembered by somebody else.’”Christina Chipriano
