The Obits Have Gone High Tech

In today's world of instantaneous information and communication, I guess it was only a matter of time until a website offered death alerts to the device of your choice. is a site geared for the baby boomers era that offers a wide variety of health tips and other services ... but keyword based death alerts is just a little over the top for me. I've always been the sort of person that got a little frightened when the local funeral director would call you by your nickname and say "see ya later". Some may argue that such a service would prove to be quite useful to individuals that have moved considerable distances from their roots or others who have claimed residency in multiple places over the years. Here's the part I don't understand ... if you didn't bother to keep in touch with them when they were alive, what difference does it make if you found out they were dead?
