My mom died when I was 28. I remember wanting to bring back the old custom of wearing a black armband so that everyone would know why I was so crazy all of a sudden.

I KNOW!! I wish we could bring it back and then expand into putting "mourning" notations on voice mail and email signatures, too. I realize anybody could do this, but nobody wants to be the only weirdo doing it.

I wonder why the custom of formalized mourning went away?
