Why should you write a farewell message


Writing a farewell message

Leaving a farewell message just got easier. Introducing Messages from Myend: the simple way to compose a future-sent email for that special family member or close friend.

Writing about a life changing moment that you have shared; whether it is a warm holiday memory, an intense private moment, the love for music or the first time you met. With a farewell message you keep that moment alive, for someone else. In thoughts they return to that one place in time and relive the moment like it was yesterday.

Even if it’s a simple just-in-case note, we hope that you and your friend or family will love it. Of course we’d love to hear your feedback too, so we can make Myend Messages even better.

To get started you need to download the Myend e-will App. It is available in both the Google Play and Apple App Stores, or if you do not have a smartphone, simply check out the online version.

Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow.

– Steve Jobs

👉 How do you write a farewell message?

Composing a message is as simple as writing a regular email, with the main difference that the message is not sent directly but securely stored for the future.

Of course the content can be more difficult to write, so don’t rush it, words will come when the time is right. You can add new contacts to your messages, and set the moment that Myend should send a specific message. Good to know: you can rewrite your messages, change them or delete them anytime. No messages will be sent out as long as you’re alive.

🧞Use messages to leave your final Wishes

Besides saying farewell to family and friends in a special way, you could write down your final wishes. Be brave and start to think about it first.
