New On Line Memorial Service Launched At is a user-friendly, multi-denominational on-line memorial service that launched in July. With its comprehensive 8-page outline for creating a tribute to the departed, allows the bereaved to elegantly commemorate a late loved one. In a bold and unusual tactic, includes a "self-reflection" page that encourages the living to set up their own commemoration. Anyone may sign up for an account, fill out a questionnaire, and add information and items to their personal memorial profile, leaving space for family and friends to use in the future.
