Are the expressions in Italic and bold correct?
Listen to me Jane, it is lovely to hold memories for our beloved ones who have passed away. However, to consider raking up their memories and grieving for them a kind of loyalty is totally unacceptable.
Thank you very much indeed.
Am I missing something? The sentence as corrected is
Shouldn't it be something like '...grieving for them IN/AS a kind [DISPLAY OF] of loyalty...' - which still makes a pretty odd kind of sense, but at least makes the sentence grammatically complete.However, to consider raking up our memories of them and grieving for them a kind of loyalty is totally unacceptable.

"Digging up" would be the expression in AmE.
