Reddit is doing something cool: inspired by Terry Pratchett’s depiction of how the names of the dead were sent home by clacks along the Grand Trunk Line on Discworld, they are working out ways to do the same for Sir Terry here in the real world.
And that inspired this song: Send Him Home.

A man’s not dead while his name is spoken
We will send him home
Down the line in a chain unbroken
We will send him home

   Send him home, send him home
Hear the shutters clack and comb
Down the line his name will roam
Send him home
