Use SMS/GPS To Find The Dead

Todays modern technology is being used to find the graves of loved ones who have past on. The Jewish burial society, Chevra Kadisha, is embracing new technology to assist families in finding grave sites for the relatives. 
Jerusalem and Tel Aviv have graveyards that hold upwards to 220,000 graves, which makes locating a specific grave quite a challenge. The technology is most often requested by grand children or great grand children whom have never visited their great/grand parents grave site. The grand children text message the name of their departed relative and receive a reply text, with GPS co-ordinates, informing them of the location of the grave site. Once the co-ordinates are entered into a rent-able GPS, they are quickly guided directly to the grave site.
