I like the way they remember and celebrate those who have passed away.

Hello!

I find that I prefer the Guatemalan approach. I like the way they remember and celebrate those who have passed away. I like that they acknowledge death, instead of denying it the way Americans do. I like that there is life, as well as death, in their cemeteries.
I have a feeling that something missed between "way" and "they". Something like "I like the way which they remember and celebrate those who have passed away." Are the original sentence and my one the same?

"who have passed away" Is this Present Perfect?

Thanks.

    "in which" is more and more frequently left out as modern English evolves. No one I know would think it awkward or missing something. By the way, Americans do remember their dead on many occasions and in different ways.

    Also: I like the way [that] they remember and celebrate those who have passed away.

    But, as pops says, it’s more idiomatic without either that or in which.
