Mocking the deceased


.בהעלתך את הנרות


Having visited today the ציון of the Zaidah the
חתם סופר זצ"ל, I noticed people light candles there.
I was wondering if this would not be considered לועג לרש.

The Chasam Sofer שו"ת ח"ו: כ"ז writes he is unaware of
the so-called מצוה רבה (sarcastic) to light a נר נשמה at
home or even at the קבר.

The Ch. Sofer holds that the concept of a  נר נשמה is only
when it is used to light up a Shul or a Bais Midrash.
