A life is more than a list of facts.
Every life is a story — one that’s richer than what you can share in a traditional obituary. When a loved one passes, family and friends gather stories, moments and memories to create a mosaic of who the person was, not just what they did. There is joy and solace in theMemories.
Tell the whole story
First of all, don’t worry: theMemories.com still lets you create a traditional obituary, complete with the time and location for services. But you’ll also have space to tell more of your loved one’s Life Story, complete with photos, milestones and the memories contributed by friends and family.
Take your time
Once you create a Life Story on theMemories.com, it never comes down. If you only want to post the obituary now you can still return later, as often as you like, to add to your loved one’s story.
