"Death be not proud ... in 140 characters or less"

In reply to: Death be not proud ... in 140 characters - BostonHerald.com

I don't believe that online legacy posts and tweeted condolences have taken the place of sympathy cards, wakes and graveside services--I expect that many of the people who knew Brittany Murphy / Bryson Ross personally will follow up with handwritten cards, "just a little something, so you don't have to cook," their appearance and compassionate words at the funeral gatherings, and all the other appropriate trappings. Rather, I think that the ability to post about one's memories of the deceased, or send a kind word immediately is just adding to the ways one can reach out to the families in their time of need.
