This illustrates the trouble with electronic communication and forums. If anything happens to a person, they can just suddenly be gone. Facebook is another one. A good friend of mine died a few years ago, his profile is still up. Nobody had access to it. Bothers me every time I see it.
Things like passwords or access, and what to do should probably be set in a will or health care directive. Most of us aren’t spring chickens. Look at the news about Luke Perry, huge surprise for all.
