In this online world, loved ones can post a person’s obituary at sites such as Afterlife. This site can be viewed all over the United States, so getting the word out about a loved one’s passing just got easier. In the past, family members would have to write and distribute their obituary notice in local papers and then call out-of-town people to get the word out. Now, in addition to posting in the local paper, family members can post the obituary online for viewing nationwide.
Getting The Word Out
Since many family members stay in touch online, it is an easy matter to send out a message online directing people to use this link. Then, they can go to the link and read the online obituary and the information about where and when the memorial service will be or where to send donations or flowers to honor the deceased. Families can even use this link to find funeral directors locally and get advice and help with after-death arrangements.
If a person has ever been one of the family members tasked with calling relatives and friends about someone dying, this will be a good alternative to all those calls. The close friends and family should still get a call, but others can get online alerts and directions to the obituary online site.
These sites not only post an obituary but have a way for people to send condolences online, order flowers, and more. People can actually sign up to receive obituaries from a certain area or state. They can also go to the site to look up public records for friends and family they are concerned about. If a person wants to know if their cousin Mary has died, they can find that out easily on sites like Afterlife.
What About A Person’s Social Media Accounts After Death?
It will be up to family members or close friends to make a choice about internet accounts a person leaves behind. There are three choices: leave the account alone, memorialize the person’s account, or delete all accounts. Leaving an account as it is is the easiest choice because nothing has to be done.
