I wish a few of my ancestors had this capability! "The Last Messages Club" is a new service that sends personal emails written prior to one's death to loved ones in the future. The messages can range from a final love letter, guidance for someone left behind, a list of instructions, or details on life insurance and other financial information. Photos, videos and documents can also be attached. Organizers insist The Last Messages Club is in no way ghoulish but eases the stress and trauma associated with the death of a loved one.
You can use The Last Messages Club to:
- Let your family know where to find details of important documents, like life insurance policies and bank account details.
- Make life easier for those you leave behind.
- Explain the reasons why you have divided your estate in the way you have & the thinking behind your will.
- Manage your on-line life with a digital will
- Give somebody the passwords to your online accounts so that they can close them down.
The system works by giving each member a secure and private vault where they are able to create messages to be sent specifically to their chosen recipient. A secure process ensures that messages are only sent after at least two people appointed by the user have confirmed that you have died and other safety criteria are met.
People can sign up to a silver option costing £45 (roughly $75 US) or a gold package costing £190 (roughly $315 US).
