San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 24, 2014
In an effort to honor loved ones and alleviate some of the burden of funeral expenses, OBITUARe.com, an online obituary service provider, today announced that for the first time, people can create and share obituaries of their loved ones for free.
“With the rising costs of funeral arrangements and the decline of traditional print media, there is an ever growing demand for a free, online obituary service,” said Steven Arevalo, co-founder, OBITUARe.com. “My experience when publishing my grandfather’s obituary in the newspaper was an extremely difficult one. The submittal process was not easy and the final cost to publish for a single day was $264. OBITUARe.com, is designed to function as a traditional obituary but adds value by simplifying the overall process. It is more affordable, offering three days of publishing for free, and more collaborative, allowing a community of users to share their lasting memories of loved ones through modern technology.”
Unlike traditional obituary services that charge a la carte per published word or image, OBITUARe.com provides an easy-to-use template that allows for unlimited text, several images and videos; as well as, the ability to easily share the obituary and funeral logistics through email and social media networks such as Facebook and Twitter.
Additional features include:
- Online guest book where family and friends can comment and upload cherished photos directly onto an obituary.
- Donation integration feature allows users to link to a personal donation page for fundraising or so that donations can be made to a charity of choice.
- Auto-generate feature helps users craft a custom obituary message based on information they provide.
The obituary plan provides an active profile for three days. Extended obituary plans are available for purchase starting at $49 for one-year and $249 indefinite.
