    Of course you can! I definitely suggest that you get it started yourself, because who knows you better than yourself, right? You can choose a traditional memorialization which could be something as simple as a physical monument in the cemetery if that's something that is meaningful to you. I super recommended to have specific instructions in your will. That's a very simple way to tell someone how you want to be memorialized. But if we're talking on the digital side, which is a big part of what we do at Keeper, you can even get it started digitally now. 

    Something that's a really great exercise while you're living is to start creating your own digital memorial page. You can get started by writing out your biography, even writing out your own obituary, which is a really great exercise. Start taking all your favorite photographs, and/or building out your genealogy. You can then assign someone as your "keeper", which will be the person that can publish the memorial page after you've passed away. There are so many different ways to do all of this, and that's why we suggest getting started doing things yourself, especially if this is something that's important to you.
