    • Click on your user name in the bar running across the top of the page (right side). You'll land on the "Personal Details" page.
    • There's a column on the far left. Scroll all the way down to "Advanced Options". Click on "Change username".
    • Follow the instructions and then click on "Save".

    I'm sorry for your loss...
