[Moderator Note] Do you want us to know when you die? [Apnea Board Postmortem Form]

Do you want us to know when you die? [Apnea Board Postmortem Form]
Let's face it, we're all going to die someday.  To many here, our friends on Apnea Board have become like a family.  We have numerous active members whom we've grown to respect and admire.  This past year, two of our forum staff members (JustMongo & PaytonA) have passed away.  When they passed on, we here on Apnea Board didn't know about it right away - they simply stopped posting, and we were left wondering-- what happened to them?

So, at the request of Apnea Board Monitor PollCat and our Advisory Members, a notification-of-death form has been developed for you to use (if you wish). 

Advisory Member srlevine1 has created an "Apnea Board Postmortem form" in PDF format.  You can download, print out this form and fill in your forum username (screen name) in advance, so that when you pass away, your loved ones can send the form to Apnea Board to let your friends here know of your passing.

The basic form can be downloaded here:

A separate form with "editable fields" can be downloaded here:

Thanks to srlevine1 for developing this form and to Crimson Nape for the editable version !

Also, if you'd like to use it, Advisory Member Sheepish created a pre-addressed envelope document that you can print out (with Apnea Board's mailing address on it).

You can download that document here:

Well...that's a thoughtful idea, and I like it.  I am also quite active on some hobby forums, and about twice a year someone posts, "Haven't heard from So-and-So for some time.  Anyone have anything to share?".  Only then does another person report that the person passed months ago.  Others figure out whom to contact and learn of a serious turn of events of some kind or another.  It's sad.  Those people all had personalities and life's experiences that they shared, and they were almost always engaged and engaging.

Nice touch.  Thanks
Contrite, and wiser.

One familiar died. His FaceBook account survived. It wasn't fun when she got her birthday congratulations for years. Now a memorial account is possible on FaceBook.
