Online memorials will help our children learn about the lives of their ancestors and preserve their memory for future generations.

Forever Missed, the popular online memorials website, now boasts a community of more than 1 million visitors since launching in late 2008. The site is host to nearly 5,400 online memorials.
“Community is incredibly important for people who have experienced loss. I created Forever Missed to cope with a loss of my own, and we’re seeing people continue to use online memorial sites as a way to bring their families together during a tough time,” said Oleg Andelman, the site’s founder.
Forever Missed aims to make it easy for anyone to quickly build a customized memorial site where friends and family can share stories, memories, songs, photos and videos of their loved one. A basic memorial website at ForeverMissed.com is free to create and lasts forever, while some additional features are available with a $74.95 lifetime membership.
Because online memorials represent a single online meeting point to honor the life of a loved one, Forever Missed users have also found it pragmatic to disseminate details around memorial services and arrangements via the memorial page. Users can subscribe to updates when there’s a change to the memorial they’re following, see how many people have visited it and sift through the community’s written and visual memories of their loved one.
“The growth of ForeverMissed.com is encouraging. Memorial websites will help our children learn about the lives of their ancestors and preserve their memory for future generations,” Andelman said.
