! PAGE 2 THE PRESS JUNE 1 1, 2014 By Jim Miller Dear Savvy Senior, What can you tell me about on- line memorials? My uncle recently passed away, and some of the fam- ily thought it wouM be neat to cre- ate an online memorial to pay tribute to him, and accommodate the many family and friends who are scattered around the country who couldn't attend his funeral. Grieving Niece Dear Grieving, It's a great idea! Online memo- rials have become increasingly popular over the past decade, as millions of people have created them for their departed loved ones as away to recognize and remem- ber them. Online Memorials? An online memorial is a website created for a deceased person that provides a central location where their family and friends can visit to share stories, fond memories, pho- tographs, comfort one another and grieve. The memorial can remain online for life (or a specific period of time) allowing people to visit and contribute any time in the pri- vacy of their own space. Online memorials started pop- ping up on the Intemet in the late 1990s, but were created primarily for people who were well known. But now, these sites are for anyone who wants to pay tribute to their departed family member or friend, and ensure they will be remem- bered. Content typically posted on an online memorial includes a biogra- phy, pictures, stories from family and friends, timelines of key events in their life, along with favorite music and even videos. ' Another common feature is the acceptance of thoughts or candles offered by visitors to the site who want to send their condolences and support to the grieving party. An online memorial can also direct visitors to the departed per- son's favorite charity or cause to make a donation, as an alternative to sending funeral flowers. How To Make One To make an online memorial, you can either create an independ- ent website, or use an established memorial site, which is what most people choose to do. Memorial websites are very easy to create and personalize, and can be done in less than 30 minutes.
