Informative, well researched and presented

Peter combs the internet and the world to find the latest topics and research on the digital aspects of death. A facinating subject and a revealing glimpse into how our society is changing its views on these sensitive and previously taboo subjects. Being in the industry myself, I know how hard it is to get people to talk about planning never mind take action. I admire Peter and his passion and enthusiasm to uncover and share his findings with the world. Thank you Peter for doing this !!!
