An online memorial is one of the best ways to create and maintain a memorial for a loved one after their death. It allows you to connect with people from around the world and gives every person access to leave special memories and details about the loved one’s life. Creating such an online memorial can be an opportunity to provide the family of that person with a bit of support in this difficult time. However, for this to happen, it’s important that you create a memorial designed to truly meet the needs of visitors.
Tips That Will Help Your Memorial Truly Capture Your Loved One’s Essence
In the creation of an online memorial, it can be important to put some time into the process so that anyone that visits can truly embrace the experience. It does not have to be difficult to do this. Here are a few tips to help you:
-Provide key information about the individual’s last arrangements such as funeral notices and details about religious services.
-Use photos to help visually capture the wonderful life this person lived.
-Create your own special message. Provide a starting point for others to share their memories. Do this by writing about this person and who this person was to you. Document his or her life.
-Provide a way for sharing the information of the loved one with others who may be interested. For example, share a link to the page and email it to friends and family so they learn of the death and can share their experiences too.
-Allow others to share information and to leave a message. They can help to contribute to the memorial in any way you see fit.
Online memorials are an excellent tool, but putting enough time into them can help you to create a location where loved ones can visit and routinely remember the person they love.

My nephew Davey Joe was only 2 weeks younger than my son, and the best friend of my son. He lived with us during college, and died in a motorcycle accident just a few months ago on 2/14/16. We wrote a song in memory of Davey Joe that somehow feels like it helped to eternalize how good he was in a song. It has a great message, “keep your eyes on paradise, this is just a blink in time.” I listen to it all the time. I hope it touches some of you also.
Missing him a lot, but the music helps!
