This blog has spent a lot of time discussing the importance of planning when it comes to funerals and death. While these are somewhat taboo subjects, much pain and grief and confusion can be avoided with a little preplanning. From providing authority over your social media accounts to pre-arranging your own funeral, there are many ways to be prepared for the inevitable event of your death or to help a loved one prepare for theirs.

The digital age has seen the advent of many tools to help people plan for deaths and funerals. Now more than ever, our wishes can be made clear and the guesswork is taken out of planning a funeral. Here are a few interesting applications that can help you plan for the future.
This application is defined as a “digital time capsule.” The service allows you to create messages to be shared at a certain future event (like a wedding or graduation) or on a future date (like a birthday or anniversary). You can even leave messages to be sent when your loved ones arrive in a specific location, like the lake house that was very special to the family. SafeBeyond also allows you to send a final message on all of your social media accounts.
