Online Obituary Site Takes Anguish Out Of The Afterlife

EVANSTON, Ill. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Anna Nicole Smith, Jerry Falwell, and James Brown may be dead as doornails, but on one online obituary, they’ll live forever., which posts more than one million memorials a year – has released its Top 25 Most-Eulogized People for 2007, and the blond bombshell, the controversial Christian, and the Godfather of Soul all made the after-life list.

Other six-feet-under celebs include...

  • Kanye West’s mom, Donda West, who bit the bullet after a botched plastic surgery.

  • Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor, who died after a vicious, off-the-field attack.

  • Tammy Faye Messner, the televangelist who lost a publicized battle with cancer.

    But it’s not just celebrities that looks back on – in fact, a 15-year-old boy named Jeffrey Alarie made the list because his parents have written in his online guestbook every day since his death.

    Hayes Ferguson, Legacy’s Chief Operating Officer says, “That’s the power of the site – you can write a remembrance of your relative and an equally important remembrance of Anna Nicole Smith. It’s sad to read some of the entries, but we’re providing an important service.”
