obvious noob questions from a writer
Regarding, freezing I think the companies will really take off when they can technically and legally freeze a living person (at the moment they tend to freeze disembodied heads after death) since a terminally ill but wealthy person can freeze themselves until a cure is found(placing their assets in the freezer co's trust) Since they are not dead, and don't die there is no dispute over the will, they have money to pay for a cure and wake up when possible and the freezer company makes money in the meantime as a management fee. This wouldn't stop them from reconstructing best guess individuals, and might even pay for it.

Personally I'd say if you went with the best guess reconstruction route your character could be from tomorrow. With cloning tech it doesn't matter that all that's left is a head anyway.
