Stack of letters are now emails, story collections are now eBooks and classic movies are now downloaded online.
With online storage systems such as iCloud, google drive, drop box, open drive and Zumo drive we can store our assets for free. It is fairly simple and easy to do. Set up an account and just download your files. Photos, videos, movies, documentaries and many more can all be stored on your drive.

If you leave instructions on what you would like to be done, it would be carried out and your friends and family will not be troubled with thoughts on what to do and what not to do.
