How Facebook has turned the normal process of dying and grieving inside out: On November 9th, 2010 an old friend posted the following status update on Facebook: “Dying. Pain. Fear. Missing all my old friends, especially from Edmonton. Looking fwd to seeing Pete tomorrow. Also my lovely Maggie – I love and miss you too. Good luck with your Betty Moon gig in LA. Might be my last post but hope not. Sorry for all those I couldn’t write directly. I love you all. If this is the last post, goodbye.”

Michael Blanchard wasn't the most popular guy when he died nearly a year ago, but when his sons just recently planned a memorial and published an obit in The Denver Post, everybody suddenly loved him.
