News of my Death

Ah yes, but what of news after death? Well, these nice people will, for a fee, pass on messages from you to your dead relatives or friends. I think they assume that their messenger is going to the same place your dead friend is.

Their web site says, We are NOT exploiting terminally ill people — All of our terminally ill messengers are mentally competent adults who have volunteered to help us.

They don't say anything about the mental competence of their customers though.
