Death Does Not Always Need To Reveal A Person's Secrets

WillsHave any embarrassing secrets that you do want others to know about, especially not your family members to know about? Well, there is a firm in Japan known as the Keepers that can be employed to ensure that all of a decedent's embarrassing property disposed of before the decedent's family members find the property. Upon invoking the service of the Keepers, a customer needs to only write a "Death Note (a sort of 'quick start' last will and testament favored in that country) which instructs your family to immediately notify Keepers upon your death." The Keepers will then arrive to take care of your problem. If you are embarrassed to let random strangers know of your dark secrets, you should not worry because the Keepers have literally seen almost everything.
