Recently, remembering the deceased has taken a digital form. Cemeteries in Saskatchewan, Canada will soon be using QR codes which will allow visitors to read the virtual obituaries of the deceased. Remco Memorials is a company in Canada that has decided to test the all new technology with the addition of the QR codes. This is going to encourage the relatives and visitors to scan the codes by using their phones, following which they will be able to read a digital obituary of the deceased over the phone. Obituaries go digital and this is how mobile technology is helping to honor the deceased in an new way.
It is true that the memorials are getting more personalized with photographs, symbols and various other things. But ever since obituaries have gone digital, remembering the deceased has become relatively more comfortable. Smartphones could help keep the memories of the deceased fresh and close to your heart. They tend to refresh memories such as the hobbies, family, work and connections of the deceased, and tell us more about them. There are many homes that already have online obituaries. Those who have already made visits to an online obituary know the kind of in-depth story it can tell.
According to David Reeson, this service is going to cost $75 per code which will be an displayed on the grave stone. With the help of a password, relatives will be allowed to comfortably access the obituaries. The story does not end here there is more that Reeson has to offer. Reeson also gives mourners the opportunity to edit, upload images and add memorable stories about the deceased. If Reeson is to be believed, this scheme has been running for awhile and there has already been a flow of positive response to this project.
With the help of a QR code, you may someday be able to connect to the digital obituary of the deceased. This digital version of remembering the deceased is a revolutionary addition to modern technology and the internet.
