Web Search Guides

by Tom Stewart, Associate Editor

Losing a close relative or friend is a difficult, emotional and stressful experience for many people. Funeral sites provide help to bereaved people by assisting them in getting through the early stages of arranging a funeral and by guiding them through the various options available.

Regardless of whether you are pre-planning a funeral for yourself, arranging a funeral for a loved one, or providing grief support, it is a difficult task at best. Funeral sites provide help and guide you through the process. Information technology has made possible an entirely new concept by providing online the very latest in funeral service personalization. To take one example, online obituaries have become an accepted mode of disseminating information of the passing away of a loved one and arranging funerals.

Such new concepts are being added all the time and you may not be familiar with what can now be accomplished online in the way of end-of-life planning.

Among the many online services now available are:

--Funeral planning

--Memorial websites

--Grief support
