For those of you that use Facebook, what do you do when one of your Facebook friends dies? Do you automatically delete them or just leave it alone?

My friend list is really small and consists of mainly my closest friends and family. A really good friend of mine passed away almost 3yrs ago but I just cant get myself to delete her old profile from my friend list. It breaks my heart when i randomly come across her profile pic and I am reminded that she is gone and I am never going to get to see or talk to her again. I know this might seem dumb or weird to some people but I just thought I would ask you gals what you have done or would do in this situation. Would you just delete them or leave it alone?

I'm not sure, I want to say I wouldn't delete it. But, maybe for closure's sake, I would.

I use my mom's page to say hello to her and that I miss her, tell her funny stories from my day, post songs etc. I guess I kind of use it as a memorial page?

I have two friends who have passed on my FB still.
Sometimes they show up when I am visiting pages where it says to suggest friends.

I have not deleted, the odd time there is an update from him....I know it is the motherof his children, but still find it a tad creepy...
