It's time to update the "Our Team" page on a website where the founder has passed away.  It's been 6 months and we want to update it so that new people coming to the site will know.  How do you even begin to do this?  As I have looked at changing her blurb to the past tense it feels odd using phrases like "she was" or "noted for".  Anyone know of a better way to update?  Would you just include another sentence at the beginning with something about her passing or go with the past tense?

Have an "Our Founder" document.





John Doe

born 1952 - died 2012


Then the history bit. You see them in the front office of companies, in introductory company brochures and the like.

My community has been going just a few months shy of fifteen years and, as I'm sure is inevitable, we've lost some of our most important Members here and there. Fortunately, our founder isn't one of them yet. (Uh, that would be me.)


We long ago set up a special place to remember each of them, a subdomain now home to seventeen wonderful memories. I think this is something every close knit community should consider.
