Grieving families protest 'duplicitous' website that reposts death notices to sell flower deliveriesTuesday, July 17, 2018
Rick Laursen said. But finding out from a delivery would be needlessly traumatic. He has now put a sign on her front door directing any flower deliveries to a neighbour’s house.Quebec-based Everhere.com, founded last year with the slogan “Where loved ones are Eternal,” says its aim is to create an “online database” of publicly posted obituaries, and to arrange them geographically by city. It also offers access to genealogical data.“We are trying to connect society by providing a free extension of what funeral homes provide for families,” the website says. Its CEO is Paco Leclerc of Montreal, according to his LinkedIn page.Earlier this year, the parents of an Ontario child who died of cancer said they were “absolutely gutted” to see their son’s obituary used in this way.Similar complaints in Newfoundland led to suggestions from a lawyer that the practice of copying text from published obituaries violates intellectual property law, just as much as if Everhere had cut and pasted a literary short story.The site offers the chance to post free messages of condolence, and it advertises flower deliveries through Bloomstoday, a florist based in Virginia that coordinates with local flower delivery services.In the new Alberta case, Rick Laursen, who works in health and safety in the oil industry, moved into his parents’ house in Calgary recently to help when his father Erik, 83, was diagnosed with cancer. Erik’s wife and Rick’s mother Margaret, 92, has vascular related dementia, and would often ask about her husband. Rick would explain that he was very sick, but then she would forget and ask again. He found he was causing her fresh gr... http://www.thewhig.com/2018/07/10/grieving-families-protest-duplicitous-website-that-reposts-death-notices-to-sell-flower-deliveries
