Generally speaking, it's my impression that they get uncomfortable, and think I'm being morbid, if I even occasionally reminisce about those who are gone.

I've found that same situation...not in an office, but even with family. I think that one of the hardest things to handle is a fear that they'll (those who have passed on) be forgotten, especially when it seems others are avoiding even the mention of their names. I've been a widow for eleven years, and just last month lost one of my daughters...that not only was and is a pain that's unimaginable, but it revives every death that's gone before. Very tough at times, but I'm coping and truly treasure the memories.
