SUPER SOURCES
As more and more people age, the resources to explore and explain the sometimes mystifying journeys of death and dying are growing, too. Along with Fiction, Health and Fitness and Travel, bookstores already feature sections on Death and Dying, and the World Wide Web is practically exploding with sites for obituaries and message boards for grieving.
Here are a few we have come across and particularly like:

Legacy.com - Where Life Stories Live On
Here’s a one-stop spot for information on the deceased – and where you can read Susan Soper’s blogs. Legacy.com is visited by more than 14 million users each month and, along with obits from 900 newspaper partners, includes blogs on grieving, celebrating and coping.

Obit-Mag.com
An online magazine (“What death can mean to the living and what living can have meant to the dead”) that posts obits of notable folks (celebrities, politicians, artists, writers, etc.).

This helpful team will gather, organize and archive letters, papers, pictures – memories of all kinds.
