Why is it that when people pass away, we mainly tend to remember the good times spent together? (I guess in a way, it is the same with relationships: after the pain of separation subsides, we sentimentalise our memories of the past experiences with the other person.) Is it a form of coping?

What if the person was mainly evil? Would Hitler's family remember his positive traits despite his overwhelmingly evil acts?
