Who would you want to notify your S.O. if you died?

Today at work I had to fill out an emergency contact form. One of the sections in there was "List department members you would like to accompany a chief officer to make the notification"
My Angel doesn't know any of the current brass very well and the thought of her having to hear about my demise from one of them ..........
So I chose a couple guys on the department I want to be there if it happens, they are friends I've worked with and partied with for about ten years now and she knows them pretty well. I just don't know if I could do it for them!

Ohh man, I can't even imagine any of my family members breaking the news. My mom and both sisters are all the most blunt people you have ever met in the world.

I don't think I'd pick my sister. She thinks everything is hilarious. When everyone was congratulating me for landing a new job at the hospital she shook my hand and said "wtg, knock'em dead"

She knows most of the guys in the office, but there are two that I'd like to break the news since she knows them well and likes them.

If we're talking outside the office, then one of her friends. She delivers bad news for a living.

It would probably be the police.
If I was sick, she'd obviously know about it and would be there. If someone had to tell her, my demise would have been an accident or act of violence of some sort.

yes, yes! i'm leaving it to my spirit.

my SO would know something is wrong if we went more than a few hours without talking. its been like that for about 4 years now. I'd leave it to whoever wants to tell her. she's going to be devastated either way.

I would want him to be the first person to find out. If that isn't possible, I think I'd prefer the first person to realize I'm dead to inform him immediately - a doctor, a nurse, a highway patrol officer... I have his name saved in my phone under "A husband" and under his name, the very first in my directory and frequently the last number called. I would hope that it would be only natural for someone to choose to inform him first.

I dislike the thought of my co-workers, my parents, his parents, or siblings finding out before he does.

you could save him under I.C.E. (In Case of Emergency) if you want to be super cautious. A lot of EMT's / Police look for this if they find your phone after an emergency.

I've had to call dozens of people from victims cell phones and have never looked for ICE. We just look for the pet names, "Pookie", "Puppy", "Baby", "Sweetheart" or mom, dad and Jr are good tells. If all else fails speed dial starting at #1 and going down the list until somebody answers.

seems as if it's more popular in Europe and Australia, but has started to grow in North America. thats what wiki says anyway.

Some cell phones have a thing that you can fill in that shows your ICE in red and first on the list. I'm with GG... he'd better be the first one close to me to know. I'd rather him hear it straight from emergency personnel or whatnot.

I second that motion. My dad passed in 2003, but he would be the only one I could think of, if he were still alive.

If he died, I'd want a police officer/doctor/other civil servant type to notify me, assuming I wasn't there with him. I couldn't tolerate his family's BS drama at such a time.

If I die and he is not with me, I'd want my dad to tell him. I don't think my mom would be fit to deliver such news.

Wow.. What a hard question! I think I'd want her mom to tell her. Either her mom or our Bunny, but since he has very interesting forms of communication, I'd rather it be her mom. She has the "mom" voice, of being compassionate and understanding while freaking out all on her own. I think I'd want her to do it.
