Thank you for publishing this useful information. It hits me in the heart every time Facebook encourages me to wish a close friend who died in 2010 a happy birthday. Wish I could, but she lost her long fight against cancer. And she’d not the only one.

I have sent my brother all my digital information I thought he needed, since my husband hasn’t a clue about social media. I hope he doesn’t lose it. I should really name a beneficiary for my accounts that pay me.

It’s too bad we have to spend so much time preparing to die that we could spend enjoying the time we have left to live.

Christian, bereaved adoptive mom, blogger, amateur nature photographer, voracious reader. Married 54 years. Central Coast of California.
