I recently came across a website called I-Tomb. I-Tomb claims to be the first virtual cemetery. For an annual charge of about 50 bucks, you can create an online "tomb" for a deceased person. You can decorate the "tomb" with virtual flowers, poems, tributes or video.
I bet you are thinking, "how can a dead person pay $50 a year to keep up the tomb." Not a problem. You can pre-pay for two decades (or a living person can keep it up and pay annually).
Don't like the idea of a virtual tomb. Another option available is to create your own virtual memorial site before you die. You may even be able to pre-write e-mails to be sent after you die.
I'll be courious to see how popular this I-Tomb business becomes. The internet is changing the world. Facebook users have already turned people's Facebook page to a tribute after death, so I-Tomb might possibly be the next logical step.
It does, however, seem a bit tacky. Don't have time to go to a loved ones grave. Well, now you can visit them on your smart phone. Some people might even multi-task and visit the virtual grave while they are at home watching T.V.
Let me know what you think?
