This is certainly a difficult and emotive issue to address. In my day job I have sadly had to repatriate a number of servicemen, women, and victims of the Tunisia shootings. There are alot of terrible things happening in the world and it is a tragedy when loved ones pass away under any circumstances.
That said, we hold a minutes silence on 11 November each year to commemorate the millions of lives lost during wars that have shaped and defined the history of the planet.
I don't think the trend of minutes silences for numerous events or individualsis is acceptable , dignified or correct.
I agree that a minutes applause for someone associated with a club or an event passing away is respectful and dignified .
I appreciate that this is a very emotive think and fully expect a tirade of abuse for lacking compassion but hope some may share my views
