Souls Remembered has created a safer*, more attractive obituary for you to share with family and friends. This web-based obituary can be shared through Social Media, as well as through email. This allows you to have complete control over who you send it to. After the funeral services have passed, the obituary can then be modified to become a Visual Life Story and shared as a life memory of the loved one who has passed.
“It was such an emotional thing to do. It brought tears of joy to my eyes. Thank You Souls Remembered for honoring my dad in this very special way. Now I can share the memory of my dad with friends and family and it is so easy to do. Thank You!”
The Visual Life Story can be a public story that is available on our website to anyone who searches our site, or it can be hidden from public searches on our website so only those whom you share the link with will be able to view it. With Souls Remembered, you are in control of who can see your life story or obituary. A safer, more controlled option that looks beautiful and really brings the memory of your loved one to the forefront.
Many funeral homes offer “tributes” to their customers as part of the funeral package. After viewing hundreds of tributes on many funeral websites we noticed that many were commercially sponsored and most were incomplete. Almost everyone we spoke with also stated that they placed an obituary in the local newspaper. This can cost hundreds, sometimes over a thousand dollars, for a small, text-only obituary that is seen by everyone who reads the obituary page, including those who are looking to take advantage of the vulnerable. There is no control over who can see the obituary and that can put you and your family at risk.
