Official Rulings for Dearly Departed

9/22/2011 : The effect is cumulative. Human creatures you control will enter the battlefield with a +1/+1 counter for each Dearly Departed in your graveyard.

9/22/2011 : In most cases, when determining whether a creature entering the battlefield under your control should get a +1/+1 counter, you'll simply look at what the creature will look like on the battlefield. You'll consider any effects affecting a creature entering the battlefield under your control that fall under one of these categories:--Replacement effects that have already modified how the permanent enters the battlefield, like the one created by Clone.--Continuous effects that changed the permanent's creature type on the stack, like the one created by Artificial Evolution.--Effects from the permanent's own static abilities, as long as they affect only that permanent, like Adaptive Automaton's.

9/22/2011 : However, you'll ignore the continuous effects of static abilities that come from other sources. For example, if you control Xenograft with Human as the chosen creature type, a Vampire creature would not enter the battlefield with a +1/+1 counter.
