Online memorials can be an important stage in the grief process and can invite people to come together, share memories and support each other through difficult times. Losing someone you love and care about is never an easy feat but online memorials can help to celebrate the life of someone with style and honour. It’s important that you craft these online memorials in a way that speaks to you and that you make it personal to the people who are grieving.
Choose the right site
The first thing you need to do when it comes to selecting online memorials is to choose a website. There are many templates and websites dedicated to online memorials and it may take a little browsing until you find something that looks and feels right.
Take your time
Don’t feel pressured or rushed when it comes to online memorials as your goal is to make it special and memorable. It’s difficult to deal with things immediately in the aftermath of losing someone and it doesn’t matter if you create the memorial today, tomorrow or next month – as long as you are ready. You should also take the time to reach out to others who are grieving the same loss and ask them if they would like to be involved in creating the online memorial and sharing the process so that everyone has the chance to come together.
Collect the materials
Take your time to collect the materials to curate your online memorials with skymorials. You may want to think about gathering photos and images, texts and stories from others and even putting together a little biography. The more materials you have for online memorials the more personal it will be and the more you feel connected to those you have lost.
