Derek K. Miller’s Final Post : DeathAndDigitalLegacy.com

Derek K. Miller was an incredible man. He blogged his way through stage 4 metastic colorectal cancer. He coined the term "digital executor" in 2008. He was a father, husband, musician, podcaster, photographer, writer and inquisitive soul.

He blogged for more than 10 years, leaving behind a gift for us all. His children, Lauren (11) and Marina (13), will have an archive of their father's insights and feelings about the world as a treasured part of their family history.

Derek's father, Karl, was quoted today in the Vancouver Province newspaper, "He was proud of his blog, and now it is his legacy. It connects him to the world, and to his family, forever. We were there for him, but Derek was comfortable sharing his thoughts with a worldwide community."

For everyone, but particularly those who are facing death as a result of cancer or other means, his blog shows how he extracted every last drop of joy that he could out of his life before the end. From his final post:

The world, indeed the whole universe, is a beautiful, astonishing, wondrous place. There is always more to find out. I don't look back and regret anything, and I hope my family can find a way to do the same.
