Facebook has changed the death rituals..
My friend had many far-flung facebook friends. Many of them have used her facebook wall to say goodbye... including me.
We've shared the bad news via Facebook -- and I'll share memorial details that way later.
We've been looking on the news for updates on the story -- and it felt more real to see her name in print.
Just now her death was the lead story on the local 6:00 news-- and folks from far away are now looking for the story to come up on-line.
While some things, like death, are inevitable -- the death rituals are changing... it's kind of weird.
