WeWillMissYou.com. An online memorial provides a place for family and friends to come together, no matter how far apart, and share memories and condolences through words and pictures.

HUNTERSVILLE, NC- August 8, 2002- One year ago, web developer Brian Williams lost his mother to cancer. In an effort to honor his mothers’ memory, Williams decided to develop a web site where friends and family could visit and pay respects. Much to Williams’ surprise, the Web site was very popular. Old friends came to the Web site to visit her photo gallery and to share wonderful memories of his mothers' high school days while new friends shared memories of club events and dinner dates. The site attracted people of all ages and geographic boundaries. Williams was amazed at the response received from people over 55 years of age. He experienced first hand the healing that occurred when an online memorial is shared.

With an ambition to help others, Williams decided to develop an Internet service to provide Web sites similar to the site he developed for his mother. He wanted a place for people to go where they would feel the reverence for their loved one without feeling as if they were entering a business site. He also wanted to provide grief support to those in mourning.

After working on WeWillMissYou.com for over a year, the site was launched August 1, 2002. The site features interactive memorials that are available immediately with personalized addresses. A free demonstration site is offered to those who are interested in purchasing a personal Web site but aren’t quite sure how the site works. The site is tasteful and elegant--a beautiful and dignified tribute to the memory of a loved one. Links to various other grief support web sites are provided for those in need of such support. One of the most unique features of the Web site is the artistic rendering technique Williams uses on portraits that can be added to the homepage of these memorials. As if the page itself were a canvas, this artful technique transforms a photographic portrait into a work of art that blends elegantly into the memorial.

Recently, Williams received a note from Bill Bailey who purchased a memorial for his mother. In it, Bailey wrote “This site gave many an opportunity to travel the years through pictures, as we celebrated her wonderful life. This site truly added a tender touch to the memorial of love that will forever live in our hearts. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. The Bailey family.”

For Williams, WeWillMissYou.com is all about helping those left behind through the grieving process. An online memorial provides a place for family and friends to come together, no matter how far apart, and share memories and condolences through words and pictures.
