    Vicki McLeod and Angela Crocker have produced a really unique digital contribution/book called Digital Legacy Plan and their clarion call “everybody dies, what’s your plan?” ...it’s a great, novel treatment of a topic that’s becoming less and less taboo – ideal for well-planned people, caregivers, and those of us who experience the death of a loved one or a social media friend. Bravo.
