Bill, what's your reasoning behind assigning these words different nuances/
The commonality of the words is easily proven from the overlapping usage.
As I mentioned, the different nuances relate to their *origins.*
TAFOS derives from QAPTW, "to bury."
MNEMEIOU is related to MNEIA, "remembrance."
We have similar words in English:
"Grave" and "Tomb."
I won't argue much theology on these subtle differences but find it
personally edifying. If you don't, I won't lose any sleep and suggest you do
not either. :-}
