Online memorials can’t ever take the place of traditional funerals and memorials services. We believe strongly, though, in the value of a virtual community of support and remembrance to help people navigate a grief process complicated by an uncertain world.
NEW YORK (PRWEB) April 29, 2020
ForeverMissed Online Memorials recognizes that one of the most painful consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic is that families are forced to remain apart during especially challenging times of pain and loss. COVID-19 victims, as well as victims of other illnesses and injuries, are dying alone during a global health crisis and are being mourned without traditional funerals. ForeverMissed is proud to offer a community of support where people can collect and share memories of their loved ones who have passed away. These lasting, virtual memorial pages can be shared so that the whole family can collaborate to preserve memories and celebrate lives lost, and families of COVID-19 victims receive a free full site access for one year.
“We all have a basic human need to gather together and express emotions during times of pain and loss,” says Oleg Andelman, Founder of ForeverMissed Memorials. “Families need and deserve a chance to say goodbye, and their loved ones deserve to be celebrated and remembered. We are proud to offer a place where people can come together to grieve their losses during an unprecedented time in our world when funerals simply aren’t possible.”
For more than a decade, ForeverMissed has offered an important outlet for grieving families and communities to gather in commiseration, celebration, and healing. Now more than ever, these virtual tools can offer a way forward for those who lack the closure a funeral typically brings. The company created a new COVID-19 page where thousands of daily visitors have paid collective tribute to the victims of this ongoing pandemic.
“Online memorials can’t ever take the place of traditional funerals and memorials services,” says Andelman. “We believe strongly, though, in the value of a virtual community of support and remembrance to help people navigate a grief process complicated by an uncertain world. Our users often tell us their online memorial pages help them cope with deep grief, and we are privileged to offer this service.”
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold, the company has plans to roll-out enhanced offerings designed to better serve those in need during this trying time.
