Just launched my new website, which concerns itself with something we don’t like to think about until we have to – death.
As our lives increasingly take on an ‘online aspect’, the number of online tributes and memorials to those who have passed away seems to be increasing. A lot of these seem to exist on facebook, but for me that is not the environment I would choose to remember a loved one.
Think This Of Me is an attempt to create a haven of peace in a hectic online world, and provide a dignified setting for a memorial.
There is another aspect too: planning for our own death. Now I don’t know about you, but I try not to think about it, but there are a few practical details that it would be handy to record: the whereabouts of your will, a list of savings accounts for example.
The website also allows you to leave video messages for your loved ones. Imagine the power of a video message to each of your children. Just recording it is quite an emotional experience. Try it and see.
All constructive feedback gratefully received.
