Below is a list of the key features we provide or are associated with here at PartingWishes.com.
 

Funeral Plan

Why should you document your funeral wishes?  First of all, it is a thoughtful and considerate gesture for your loved ones who would otherwise be faced with a battery of questions and options at a time when they are least capable of dealing with them.  You may have discussed in general terms with your family whether you would rather be buried or cremated, or that you would prefer a big party over a somber get together, but most people do not even consider these basic questions until they reflect on their own mortality.  For many people it is also a difficult subject to discuss seriously and openly with their friends and family.  However, even if you have made your basic wishes known, did you share your views on the overall cost of the funeral service, or who you would like to be present, or any readings or music that you feel would be appropriate at your service?  And what guarantee do you have that your wishes will be remembered or communicated when the time is right?

 

Prewritten Last Messages

If somehow you knew that you were about to suddenly pass away, are there any messages that you wish you could communicate to your family or friends?  Do you have any important information you would like to be communicated after you are gone?  For example, you may want to tell someone how much you loved them, or what you really thought about them.  Or you might want to pass on some instructions, send an expression of thanks to people who influenced your life, or admit to a skeleton in your closet.

 

Last Will and Testament

We have removed the obstacles to writing a Will.  It is convenient, low cost, and simple.  The MyWill™ service steps you through a series of questions in a "wizard" format.  All questions are written in plain language, so you don't have to be a legal expert to create your own Will.  You simply answer the questions, complete the details, and we automatically and instantly format a document that forms the basis of a legal Will, custom-made for your local jurisdiction.  If you live in the U.S., Canada, England or Wales, this document can then be printed and signed in front of witnesses to become a legally binding document.  There is also plenty of supplementary information to help answer all of your questions.

Living Will

Most people die in hospitals and often this is after receiving treatment administered in an effort to prolong a person's life.  Medical staff are duty bound to use everything within the powers of modern medicine to keep a patient alive as long as possible, and within those powers there are regulations to be followed.  Medical staff are obliged to preserve a patient's life without necessarily considering the financial or emotional concerns of the patient and loved ones.

 

Life Locker

What is Life Locker?

  • Information management system
  • Document management system
  • Data management system
  • Life organizer
  • Personal information manager
  • Information organizer

Store and maintain personal information that is critical to be passed on to your family, or to the executor(s) of your Will, after you have passed away.  Let us worry about getting this information to your designated individuals when the time is right.

We all want to be better organized. But a lot of us never seem to have the time or the system to make it happen. We'll get stressed and frustrated, looking for important details. We'll kick ourselves for wasting time. But we'll eventually get back into the flow of our busy everyday lives � until some other vital piece of missing information turns our lives upside down again for awhile. But life goes on, right? Well, what if life didn't go on? What if you got hit by that proverbial bus? All of a sudden you're gone � and others in your life have to try and piece together the crucial details in your life. It's not anything you want to think about, but it is something you should consider.

Store personal information critical to be passed on to your family and Executor.  Keep all of your important information documented in one place, so that your Executor and Keyholders® can administer your estate easily and effectively.  Anyone who has to organize, manage and safeguard personal information will find MyLifeLocker™ invaluable.

The work of an Executor is challenging.  They must gather your assets and contact the important people in your life.  It is important that your Executor can find all of your assets including bank accounts, possessions, property, and even online accounts.  You can make this task easy by tracking this information in MyLifeLocker™.  Store your important information securely and nominate Keyholders® who can access the information at the appropriate time.

MyLifeLocker™ is the perfect solution.  First, it puts everything important to you in one central place, so that no matter what happens, all your life details are located in one spot.  Secondly, having MyLifeLocker™ gives you incredible peace-of-mind.  Those hundreds of little details swirling around can be retrieved easily � whether it's by you today or tomorrow, or by someone close to you at some point in the future.

MyLifeLocker™ creates a safe repository of your important personal information.  Enjoy peace-of-mind, knowing that if something happens to you, your family can easily find the information they need.

 

Web Page About Your Life

The MyLife™ service allows you to create a web page as a tribute to yourself.  Many people today have a personal home page on the Internet.  It may contain useful information, it might be entertaining, or it could be a simple way for people to obtain an insight into the person that you really are.  What will happen though when you are no longer here?  Will anybody maintain your place in cyberspace?

 

Online Memorial

The MyMemorials™ service is a FREE service which allows you to create a web page as a tribute to anyone who was important to you.  Include photos, thoughts, memories, accomplishments, or anything else you'd like them to be remembered by.  You can add text, graphics, and even audio and video. 

 

Advance Directives

Advance directives give you a voice in decisions about your medical care when you are unconscious or too ill to communicate. As long as you are able to express your own decisions, your advance directives will not be used and you can accept or refuse any medical treatment. But if you become seriously ill, you may lose the ability to participate in decisions about your own treatment.

 

Burial

What is burial?  Body burial or direct burial simply means placing a body in the ground after death. The term now also covers storing the whole body above-ground in a mausoleum, vault or other type of crypt. While cremation is gaining popularity, most bodies in North America are buried. They are generally placed in some type of receptacle placed in the ground or stored above ground.

 

Cremation

What is cremation?  When a body is cremated, it is heated intensely -- 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit or higher -- in an oven-like device called a "retort". It is reduced to several pounds of ash and some fragments of bones, called "cremains" (cremated remains) or they may simply be referred to as "ashes". The entire process takes from two to three hours. Larger bone fragments within the ashes are usually pulverized before being gathered. The ashes can then be placed in an urn or other container to be given to a relative, buried, or entombed in a cemetery or a "columbarium", an arrangement of niches in a wall or a room where urns can be placed as a permanent memorial. Alternatively, ashes can be scattered on land or over water, depending on local laws and restrictions.

 

Death and Dying

PartingWishes.com is dedicated to providing services related to death and dying and advance directives prior to one's death.  Estate planning while you are still healthy is a wise course of action, to ensure that your wishes are carried out the way you would like them to be.  Unfortunately, death and taxes are an unavoidable part of life in today's society.  Estate taxes and death taxes can be handled more appropriately in advance, by minimizing the estate tax impacts to your survivors.

 

Digital Signatures

What is a digital signature?  A digital signature is a convenient, time-saving, and secure way of signing electronic documents.  It is an electronic signature which can be used in all types of electronic information transfer.  The differences between digital signatures and other electronic signatures are significant, not only in terms of process and results, but also because those differences make a digital signature more serviceable for legal purposes.  However, some electronic signatures, though perhaps legally recognizable as signatures, may not be as secure as digital signatures, and may lead to uncertainty and disputes.

 

Euthanasia

What is euthanasia?  Euthanasia is the act of intentionally causing the death of a patient, normally to relieve the patient's pain, suffering, or loss of quality of life. To be considered euthanasia, the act must be performed by a third party. For example, giving a patient a lethal injection would be considered euthanasia.

 

Executor of a Will

If you are the executor of the Will of a member here at PartingWishes.com, you probably have a lot of questions about your responsibilities. Here you will find a good summary of the steps that must be followed, as well as some additional information about your responsibilities.

 

Financial Estate Planning

Estate planning is a lifelong process in which you evaluate your situation and plan for the future. It includes planning for your retirement, for the possibility of disability, and for death. The estate planning process requires that you consider a wide range of legal, financial, emotional, and logistical issues.  Proper estate planning will also allow you to minimize estate taxes and death taxes.

 

Funeral Home

There are a number of good reasons to pre-arrange your own funeral.  First of all, it is a thoughtful and considerate gesture for your loved ones who would otherwise be faced with a battery of questions and options at a time when they are least capable of dealing with them.  You may have discussed in general terms with your family whether you would rather be buried or cremated, or that you would prefer a big party over a somber get together, but most people do not even consider these basic questions until they reflect on their own mortality.  For many people it is also a difficult subject to discuss seriously and openly with your friends and family.  However, even if you have made your basic wishes known, did you share your views on the overall cost of the funeral service, or who you would like to be present, or any readings or music that you feel would be appropriate at your service?  And what guarantee do you have that your wishes will be remembered or communicated when the time is right?

 

Obituary

You can either write the obituary yourself, or you can appoint somebody else to write it.  If it is written by somebody else, it will usually be a tribute to how you impacted the lives of your friends and loved ones.  It will celebrate your life and mourn your passing.  If it is written by yourself, you can include an account of your life, paying tribute to those who have touched you.  You can write whatever is important to you, but there may be restrictions on the length of the obituary based on the publication that you choose.  The obituary should be published a few days before the memorial service as it should include details of the time and location of the service and any donations that may be made.

 

Organ Donation

Many of your internal organs are still functional after you have died. Organ donation is a process to surgically remove useful organs after you have died, and pass these to recipients who are otherwise healthy, but need a particular functional organ. In North America alone over 50 people receive organs each day but there are currently tens of thousands of patients waiting to receive functional organs. Often these people are in life threatening conditions.

 

Signing a Will

In order to make a Will a legal document, you should first print it and read it thoroughly. Make sure that it accurately reflects your wishes and that you understand everything that is contained in the document. Once you are happy that it reflects your wishes, you must sign your Will in the presence of at least two witnesses (three in some jurisdictions), and these witnesses must also sign the Will, in the presence of the "testator" (yourself) and in the presence of each other. You and the witnesses should also initial each page, so that it is not possible to alter any pages after the Will has been signed. A witness cannot be a beneficiary of the Will, they cannot be the spouse of a beneficiary (at the time of signing), they cannot be a minor, and, like the "testator" (you), they must be of sound mind.

 

How To Write a Will

The vast majority of people do not have a Will.  Some people feel that they do not need one because they believe that the distribution of their estate is obvious.  Others find it to be too time consuming to get organized, find a lawyer, arrange appointments and attend meetings during their already busy schedules.  Many feel that the lawyers' fees surrounding the creation and maintenance of a Will are too expensive.  Most people do not know how to write a will.

 

How To Create a Power Of Attorney

What if you were in a coma, or otherwise incapacitated such that you were unable to communicate?  Or struck with a disease or other tragedy which affected your mind?  Who should control your finances, or your assets?  The MyPowerOfAttorney™ service here at PartingWishes.com ensures that your wishes in these and other unexpected circumstances are heard, understood, and carried out to your specifications.

 

How To Write a Living Will

A Living Will gives you some say in the way you will be treated before you die, in a situation where death is otherwise inevitable.  This can be used in two ways --- to put a swift end to intolerable suffering, or to endorse the use of experimental treatment to try and save your life if at all possible.  Most people die in hospitals and often this is after receiving treatment administered in an effort to prolong a person's life.  Medical staff are duty bound to use everything within the powers of modern medicine to keep a patient alive as long as possible, and within those powers there are regulations to be followed.  Medical staff are obliged to preserve a patient's life without necessarily considering the financial or emotional concerns of the patient and loved ones.

Do not put it off any longer.  The vast majority of people do not have a Will.  Some people feel that they do not need one because they believe that the distribution of their estate is obvious.  Others find it to be too time consuming to get organized, find a lawyer, arrange appointments and attend meetings during their already busy schedules.  Many feel that the lawyers' fees surrounding the creation and maintenance of a Will are too expensive.  Whatever your reason may be, you should know that it is extremely important that you have an up to date Will.  If you die without a Will, the courts will decide how your estate is distributed, and this may not be in the best interests of your loved ones.  It is impossible for us to know how your estate will be distributed, but we do know that if you have a Will, then the decisions are in your hands.

Most of our services here at PartingWishes.com are completely international.  They can be used by anyone in any country in the world. 

Services such as MyFuneral™, MyMessages™, MyLife™, MyLifeLocker™ and MyMemorials™ do not create legal documents and make no assumptions about your country of residence.

Writing a Living Will

We have removed the obstacles to writing a Living Will.  It is convenient, low cost, and simple. The MyLivingWill™ service steps you through a series of questions in a "wizard" format.  It will ask you about your wishes regarding different types of treatment under different conditions, and allow you to set up your Advance Directives --- your Living Will (U.S., Canada, England & Wales) and Power of Attorney for Health Care (U.S. & Canada only).  All questions are written in plain language, so you don't have to be a legal expert to create your own Advance Directives.  You simply answer the questions about your medical care wishes and we automatically and instantly format a document that forms the basis of a legal Living Will and Power of Attorney for Health Care, custom-made for your local jurisdiction.  If you live in the U.S., Canada, England or Wales, the documents can then be printed and signed in front of witnesses to become legally binding documents.  There is also plenty of supplementary information to help answer all of your questions.

A Living Will gives you some say in the way you will be treated before you die, in a situation where death is otherwise inevitable.  This can be used in two ways --- to put a swift end to intolerable suffering, or to endorse the use of experimental treatment to try and save your life if at all possible.  Most people die in hospitals and often this is after receiving treatment administered in an effort to prolong a person's life.  Medical staff are duty bound to use everything within the powers of modern medicine to keep a patient alive as long as possible, and within those powers there are regulations to be followed.  Medical staff are obliged to preserve a patient's life without necessarily considering the financial or emotional concerns of the patient and loved ones.

In the US, Canada, England and Wales, we have worked extensively to ensure that the legal documents created by the MyWill™, MyExpatWill™ and MyLivingWill™ services are up to date with the laws in all of the states in the United States and the provinces in Canada, including: Alabama, Alaska, Alberta, Arizona, Arkansas, British Columbia, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Manitoba, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Nunavut, Ohio, Oklahoma, Ontario, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Prince Edward Island, Rhode Island, Saskatchewan, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, Washington D.C., West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming, and Yukon.  Hence, these services can be used to generate legal documents in any state in the United States with the exception of Louisiana, and any Canadian province with the exception of Quebec, and in England and Wales in the United Kingdom. If you are in Quebec, you can consider downloading a Quebec Will Kit from QuebecWillKit.ca.

Furthermore, the MyPowerOfAttorney™ service is available for all States in the United States except Louisiana, and for all Provinces in Canada except Quebec. In the UK, power of attorney forms are provided free of charge by the government.

Note that even in unsupported areas, there is value in stepping through the wizards provided in these services in preparation for a consultation with an attorney.  It is strongly recommended that residents outside of the above supported states/provinces/countries seek legal advice even after completing the wizards. Local laws in these unsupported areas have not been considered in the structure of the legal documents.

If you have any doubts about the legal standing of any documents in your jurisdiction, feel free to seek legal counsel in your area to have your documents reviewed.

Online Memorials

Do you have a friend or loved one (or celebrity) that has passed away?  Would you like them to be remembered not only for the near future, but for years to come?  Why not create a permanent online memorial for them?

The MyMemorials™ service is a FREE service which allows you to create a web page as a tribute to anyone who was important to you.  Include photos, thoughts, memories, accomplishments, or anything else you'd like them to be remembered by.  You can add text, graphics, and even audio and video. 

Visitors can add notes and upload their own photos and memorabilia.  Based on a structure designed by you, visitors, friends and family members can contribute their own words, pictures, notes, comments and other parting sentiments about this person's life.  For example, they could add an audio message such as a poem, a reading, or an anecdote about some time they spent with this person.  If you wish, you can even let visitors upload their own photos, audio clips, video clips, and other memorabilia.

Provide immortality on the Internet!  This web page will stay online for as many years as you specify.  There is also an option to keep it online forever if you so desire, thus immortally preserving this person's life on the Internet until the end of time.  Friends, family, children and their children for generations to come will be able to see the real character of this person and of the life that they led.

An incredible way to create a lasting memorial and tribute to a person's life.   An opportunity for future generations to read, see, hear and learn about how they lived and how important they were to their family, to their friends, and to their community.

No advertising banners will ever appear on the web page.  Unlike some other online memorial services, this service is intended just for you and this person's legacy.  It has been designed to provide an elegant, tasteful and lasting tribute to a person's life.
