I would agree with this statement 110%. They should be serviced as the
opportunity permits.

I get client calls at all times of the day needing to buy/sell a house,
investment property, land - devorce, death in the family, financial
situation changed, a new baby, etc. I have to be ready to go at a moment's
notice to list the house for sale or help them buy a house. Would I be able
to earn that business without being available to look at homes at 8:30
p.m.or talking to that person at 11 p.m. at night on the phone? Probably,
no. Would they buy a house from someone else? Yes. Consumers have an option
in every day things, not in cryonics at this point.

If they procrastinate, but have an opportunity to be suspended, why not take
advantage of this. You add a patient and family will be happy. At the same
time, when people are stressed to this point, anything positive will be
engraved in their mind. I can speculate (without any data) that the % of
signed up living relatives of thos who are already suspended is drastically
higher than of the general population awareness of cryonics.

Why not cater to procrastinators? It makes sense, it's more demanding, it
maybe more expensive - but let's remember about an early bird and that pesky
worm :o)
