    • “I’m (very |so )?sorry.”
    • “How can I help you?”(and then HELP THEM)
    • LISTEN.
    • NEVER make a speech.
    • NEVER try to push the grieving process along.
    • NEVER comment on the deceased’s relationship with any deities.
    • Dealing with your virtual life after death

    • Websites may be leased space, but content is sticky.Blog comments, social media accounts, Usenet posts, etc. will outlast you.
    • Remember your virtual life in your will
    • Remember your online life in your will
      State in your will or in a codicil:
      Where your sites and accounts are
      Whether to keep them running or delete them
    • Remember your online life in your will
      If you want to keep sites running, set money aside for that in your will
    • Remember your online life in your will
      Keep passwords written somewhere safe (e.g. safe deposit box) + say where they are in will
    • Your body?
      That’s up to you

    • Unfortunately, most states ban a full Viking funeral.
    • Summary
      “I’m sorry” is all you have to say
      Listen, offer help – look for ways to help
      No speeches! It’s not about you
    • Summary
      Decide if you want your sites/accounts to continue after your death
      State your decision in your will
      Keep your info somewhere safe for your executors to access
    • Thank You
