Nah, I know Ebbie...but seriously, if someone who I think was an asshole when he/she was alive; apart from being able to empathise with the loss their family is going through, I don't tend to change my opinion of them when they depart these mortal chains.
However. As far as 'liking dead people' in general, is concerned. isn't that a contradiction in terms? Or a bit of faecesness in itself?
