|Lola, there's an easy way to handle that problem... though finding out didn't happen so easily. I offered to change my status to test stuff, but Dad said NO WAY was he gonna "check THAT box" for me. So I convinced him to use Webster's page because I knew darn well that's what Web would've wanted us to do and he couldn't argue with that.
All your Mom needs to do is to UNcheck the box that says "no longer with us" or whatever it says there. And maybe clear the date fields out by setting them to their titles first; we did that but didn't try it without doing that. It probably would have worked without messing with the dates, but I can't say for sure. Anyway, uncheck the box, which makes the date fields disappear, and save the change. Then go back and check it back on again. The date fields will reappear, but there will be no data in them. Save the change once again, and you're done.
That little experiment got Dad's eyes leaking, because all he could think of was "if only it was that easy to make it really happen". I had no answer to that, other than a major-league headbonk and purrs.
