Transcript of Remembering

Remembering Memory Short-term Long-term People fear death So they try to keep memory alive Memorialization a centuries-old tradition New online choices Buy a flower Buy a flame Post info about deceased Does it help? Sure . . .

No knowledge of others who can sympathize Overwhelming choices online Need for specific words in search criteria . . . and some sites just want money Education is key Since death will come to us all, we all need to be better prepared.
