Readers respond to a Sunday Review essay, “Getting
Grief Right.”

“Getting Grief Right,” by Patrick O’Malley (Sunday
Review, Jan. 11), is puzzling. It purports to criticize
generalizations about grief and our treatment of people
who grieve.

He notes that grief can be a complex process and that
stage theories and the promise of closure are not
helpful.

NFFD – What IS the Point?
(Will Eccleston / National Federation of Funeral Directors : 01-19-15)
NFFD
Here at the National Federation of Funeral Directors we
recognise the fact that our industry, in its current form,
continues, consciously or subconsciously, to facilitate the
systematic exploitation of consumers – an unacceptable
situation and one in which the industry’s biggest and most
influential trade bodies play an active part. Mercifully, many
funeral directors are starting to warm to our theme and
recognise the fact that keener pricing, if combined with a
more modern philosophy and approach, can and will...

(Funeral Fund : 01-15-15) (Read the complete story click here: Continue)
Death is part of life. We all know that, yet many of us
are unprepared for it. Loved ones left behind are
unsure how to go about laying their deceased family
member to rest other than the basic burial or
cremation. The funeral is often assumed to be a part
of the burial, so they may expect matters to simply fall
into place as they just go through the motions: Eulogy,
followed by kind words, followed by psalms,
followed by hymns, and so on.

Managing Your Digital Assets

As the digital world around us becomes a greater part
of our everyday lives, we are faced with how to
protect assets and pass on accounts after death. And
even if all the required passwords are left behind,
many heirs will find they have no clear authority to
access or manage the online accounts of the
deceased, a legal headache for those grieving a loved
one. Online user agreements can be confusing and
sometimes contradictory, and state and federal laws
can restrict Internet users’ ability to transfer their
online accounts to loved ones after their death. In...
