Grieving and Technology

Death has been on my mind a lot lately.
Stephen and I recently watched Black Mirror on Netflix and we put off watching the one about the dead boyfriend robot because death is a touchy subject with me.  I'm already super emotional and I knew this episode was gonna suck. 
We did watch it eventually and it wasn't as sucky as I thought it was going to be....  but it did get me all moody about death and all my friends and family dying.  
Another thing that's happening in my life: my grandma has been asking me what I want when she dies & sometimes she just hugs me tight and says that she’ll miss me when she’s dead….
yeah. 

Black Mirror showed some cool pros and the ugly cons about staying in touch with the deceased through AI.  I think it would be kinda cool if we had some sort of hologram technology that pulled from social media / video files.  I feel like that would help me a lot in my grieving process.
