Sympathy Cards In Cyberspace

There's a new twist in sending condolences. Funeral homes are adding e-mail addresses to obituaries so people can post messages for grieving families. Rob Rue of Littleton and Rue funeral homes in west-central Ohio says friends who are out-of-town and can't attend the funeral can instantly express their sympathy. And he says because mourners often e-mail their condolences soon after learning of a death, many messages are right from the heart. Roger Thomas of Baker-Hazel Funeral Home in Dayton says some people may consider e-condolences as impersonal. But he says for those who are computer savvy, the messages can be very comforting.
