Do You Have a Virtual Will?

virtual will blog imageIt was my friend Jeanne’s birthday, and Facebook reminded me to wish her well. I would have dearly loved to do so, but, well, sadly, Jeanne died over a year ago. This is the sort of thing that can happen – intentionally or unintentionally – with one’s digital (virtual) assets after death. You can purposely leave an account in place, or maintain a website as a memorial to a loved one (among other reasons)… or you might instead find yourself scrambling to figure out how to delete it if there was no plan in place and things are happening that you hadn’t foreseen. Yikes!
