New York, NY (PRWEB) June 16, 2014
Sanctri announced today the creation of a Sanctri, or memorial page, to celebrate the life and work of Casey Kasem, who died yesterday, 6/15/14, at age 82.
For generations of Americans, Casey Kasem was the voice on the radio bringing them “America’s Top 40” every week for nearly 20 years. He was also the voice of Shaggy on the cartoon “Scooby Doo.” Kasem received a star on the famous “Hollywood Walk of Fame” in 1981 and in 1992 he became the youngest inductee into the “National Radio Hall of Fame.” In 1997 Kasem was honored with Billboard magazine’s first ever “Lifetime Achievement Award.”
Casey has been off the radio for years, as a result of both Parkinson’s Disease and dementia. Although we will always have old episodes of Scooby Doo to watch, the passing of Casey Kasem represents a loss for his innumerable fans. His Sanctri on Facebook offers anyone the opportunity to share their feelings with other fans, friends and loved ones. In fact, the very act of sharing strong emotions has been proven to have therapeutic value, even when the relationship is between celebrity and fan.
The public is invited to contribute to Casey Kasem’s memorial, using the free Sanctri app on Facebook. By joining the community and adding videos, stories, and photos, fans themselves will weave the story of what Casey Kasem meant to the world. And by making a donation in his memory, we can help his name, and the voice that brought us all so much joy, live on.
Sanctri is an app that gives the world a better way to deal with death on Facebook. Every year more than 4 million Facebook users will pass away, leaving their pages silenced and frozen in time. Sanctri is a place for friends and family to remember a life that was – and honor the relationship that still is. Anyone can create a virtual memorial page on Sanctri, and then collaborate in contributing thoughts, memories, photos and more. Users can also donate directly through the app to over 8000 charities, in memory. Sanctri has been recognized as an innovator by major news organizations and has forged partnerships with leading non-profit organizations. It is a community to receive guidance and support, and a better way to memorialize on Facebook.
