A reminder for Netizens



My friends are dropping like flies. Ragnar Fyri, a long-time internet acquaintance from Norway passed away suddenly, and I only found out about it through one of my online communities. He will be sorely missed.

The event, however, prompts me to post this little reminder. I had thought about it before, but when my wife mentioned it independently some time ago, I took that as a confirmation that it should be done sooner than later.

My last instructions to my loved ones, kept alongside my Last Will and Testament, includes this little section:

In the event of my unexpected demise, please do me a favor and notify my friends around the world by posting messages in the following places. They would wonder if I suddenly went quiet. I learned of my Godfather's passing 5 months after the fact, and that was nasty - I don't want that to happen to people I care about.

Etc.

It just makes good sense.

Indeed. I am working up my funerary instructions, and they also include notices to be placed in the various online communities where I travel.

My condolences Old Wolf.

Yeah I just read that on I think it was Kathy's forum. Sighs :(

He has 12,400 posts even on Mark's forum. To say he'll be missed is an understatement.

And a wise choice on where to post bad but necessary news is a sound idea. I will emulate your idea here.
