I Heard It Through The Grapevine: So Who Wants to Know or Needs To?

UK friends: website descriptions that are specific to the UK are in green text.

The how, why, when, and where of proper notification is an important and necessary part of the mourning ritual.  After all, you may be dead, but you still have to mind your manners.

 

Did You Know …

The latest rage is to have a solar-powered panel containing a multimedia tribute to the deceased mounted on the monument or memorial marker.  Who says baby boomers are self-absorbed? Just think, you can make your own tribute before you die and include all of those moments when you looked really skinny.

Think about writing your own obituary – have your say, your way.

You can actually send emails after you are dead. While it might be touching to receive a note from the dearly departed, some people just need to, you know, stay dead.

 

A glowing tribute. Think about a translucent cast glass memorial instead of traditional granite or bronze. These headstones are luminescent in natural light and are both radiant and incredibly tactile. Photograph courtesy of Lundgren Monuments http://www.lundgrenmonuments.com/
