  •  I can understand that. (5+ / 0-)

    For me, I consider the "rec" of such diaries similar to passing around a letter - a note of shared, common expression of love & remembrance - for the person and for the one who has departed the world of flesh.

    It's an opportunity to enable others to share their hearts & help sooth the soul of the grieved, and to wish enlightenment upon the departed as they begin their next journey.

    That's what helps me realize that, for diaries such as these, a "rec" is a heartfelt hug & shared opportunity for alerting the community that another is grieving - not the standard or more common meaning of the word & action.
