Have you ever been awakened at 3:00 in the morning with the thought of planning your own funeral? If you’re like me, that’s happened a few times. But now with a Washington-based funeral business, you can plan your “final goodbye” online and from the comfort of your own home.
The new website – TheFuneralSite.com – lets you fill out a list of questions that you can use to plan your own funeral. From the number of funeral cars you want to the music to play at the ceremony, everything is covered on this innovative website.
David Johnson, owner of the company that runs the website, said this is the next big thing in funeral planning. “This sort of picks up on a trend we’re seeing, how so much of a person’s life is impacted by the Web these days,” he said. “We’re sort of bringing that over to the funeral-planning side of things. It’s sort of a last frontier of the Internet.”
The website launched in October and Johnson runs it full-time with his wife, Anna Copley. In addition to funeral planning services, the website also offers funeral resources. It’s also one of the first websites to offer local funeral guides in the nation.
With such an innovative website, it deserves more than just one blog post. We’ll have more information about TheFuneralSite.com in Wednesday’s post.
