“As we continue the process of offering psAfterlife to the public I am awed and humbled by the idea that we can assist others in finding transcendence through their loved ones. I have always believed that work should be more than something we have to do just to survive; I believe it is an integral part of what defines us as human beings. Therefore I find it deeply fulfilling to have this opportunity to be involved in work that promotes love and the expression of a mature meaningful life”.

"When Robert invited me to participate in the ps Afterlife project, I knew right away that this was something I wanted to be part of. I have often wondered what would happen to my affairs when I died. My husband and I had planned for many of the eventualities that might come with our passing. We focused on issues like the transfer of our bank accounts and our assets. We never really considered how our family would deal with our digital assets. How would they know which websites had our family photos? How would they access my social networking and e-mail accounts? How would they know where I keep a digital backup of important family documents like birth certificates, family books, medical records and passports?
In planning for something like this there are so many things to keep in mind. With such busy lives it is so hard to keep track of it all and then find the time with in which to get it done. This is why when I was given the opportunity to help design a tool that guides people gently through the process of planning and delivering their Legacy, I became fascinated with the idea".

"My kids are my life. The service provided by psAfterlife is the best way I know of to ensure that everything I have worked for during my life will be passed on to them. I see tremendous value in that sense of security not only for me but for many other people as well and, therefore, when I was offered the chance to become a part of the psAfterlife team, the decision was clear to me".
