What are Virtual Memorials?
Virtual services are similar to traditional services: there are eulogies, speeches, and faith elements. Because the service is entirely virtual, we can customize the experience to create a unique and memorable service, entirely online. Families can include pre-recordings, slideshows, live performances and more.
After the program, we invite guests to share a memory or a story with everyone online. With the sharing circle, family and friends are able to hear from everyone from different aspects of someone’s life. It’s unique to the virtual service and quite beautiful.
We work with families to create unique slideshows, featuring photos, songs, and videos. These slideshows can also feature voiceovers, transitions, and any effects the families can imagine. All services are recorded, edited, and stored for the family forever.
