Why should I create a memorial website?

Online memorials are becoming more popular as they offer a way to share memories and keep loved ones connected. They are one of the easiest ways to keep folks updated on event details, share in the loss of a loved one, collect memories, photos and more. Here are just some of the things a memorial website can offer you:

  • A place to share memories and celebrate the life of your loved one
  • A way to keep everyone updated on funeral and memorial service details
  • A means of collecting condolences, memories and photos in one place
  • A permanent online memorial that can be visited anytime, from anywhere
  • A place to connect with others who are grieving the loss of a loved one
  • A way to honor and remember your loved one long after they are gone.
  • A place to post an obituary (for free!), post public notes and updates
  • A place to collect donations towards a personal expense, a charitable cause, or any other cause you'd like
  • A way to show a timeline of your loved one's life
