The classics nerd in me had to say this:

In Memoriam does not mean "in memory", as blue used it in his post. Rather it means "into memory" (memoriam being in the accusative case and implying motion towards). The idea is that when the person was alive he existed, but now he exists only in our memory, and that some day we all will only exist in the memories of others. I've always found the phrase to be quite poignant and beautiful, much more so than a simple "In memory of". At any rate, thought some of you might be interested.
