What happens to your online information when you die?

I want to share a story with you from Calgary Herald: By Claudia Buck, SACRAMENTO, Calif. — When most people think about bequeathing their belongings, it’s the obvious: the house, the car, bank accounts, the sentimental family mementos. But what about your Facebook, Gmail, Yahoo or Amazon accounts?

Is embalming required if you are going to be cremated?

No.  In regards to cremation, embalming is only required if a viewing is to take place prior to the cremation.  That being said, it is not manditory to have the deceased embalmed for a basic viewing.  Embalming is highly recommended for viewings as the procedure results in the deceased being cleaner and more presentable to family members & friends.  Many times the deceased's body will be present at the funeral service with cremation taking place afterwards.  In this instance embalming is also highly recommended.
