My Grandfather & 2x Grandfather's birthdays are soon. Both have passed. Is there a way to honor the day here?

+5 votes
I would like to honor what would have been my 2x Grandfather Evan Wallace Shankle's 161st birthday and my Grandfather Raymond Arthur Shields' 98th birthday in some way. I know there are e-cards to send to living members, but is there a protocal for those that have passed to celebrate what would have been a birthday with my fellow genealogists?

Great question, Pam. And great sentiment. :-)

I have a terrific imagination and tons of ideas and sentiments Chris.. The down side of this is coming up creative ways to do them.. I used to be proficient in Photoshop Illistrator making animated gif files, but I'm behind the times with newer versions, and there are several places that .gif files only show 1 layer, not the full animation. I had started creating one that would have a picture of both Grandfather and 2x Grandfather adding candles that blow out, but does .gif files work here in WikiTree? Second part of that aspect would be the right area to post it. I quite often will post a pic of others recently passed on FB for what would be their birthday or a remembrance on their passing day on my wall, but would love to genealogically (making up my own word here..) honor them, especially since there are others here with familial members that tie into my own. *sigh* The minds of mice and men... indecision
