On Death

I continue to feel really, really weird when people post death notices of prominent SCAdians on SCA-related facebook pages, email lists, livejournals, etc. I thought perhaps my feelings might change when someone I knew died, but they did not. I feel really voyeuristic, almost offended that I'm receiving information I feel is private. Yet I don't feel this way when a "famous person" dies. Thoughts?
