CERRITOS, Calif., Jan. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- COVID-19 has caused its share of pain. And there are few times when that is more apparent than when we lose a loved one. Social distancing and attendance limitations at funeral services prevent people from gathering to celebrate the memory of their loved one and encourage one another. Feeling that very amplified pain in close friends who lost loved ones, spurred the creation of OurBeloved.Online.
This week, OurBeloved.Online launched to provide an avenue to share memories and pay tribute to their loved ones who have died. It is timely during the current COVID-19 pandemic because it is difficult to come together to comfort one another.
"During a time of loss, remembering a life can ease our grief. Not being able to reminisce with others adds to the pain of losing someone. It also can lead to sorrow when we cannot pay tribute to our loved ones as we know they deserve. OurBeloved.Online aims to fill the void many of us have experienced during the current health crisis and it also provides a heart-warming long-term provision to continually connect with family and close friends over happy memories with those who share in their loss," explained Magaly.
Unlike other social media channels, OurBeloved.Online provides a dedicated place to keep memories alive as an immediate and ongoing means of honoring individuals via its user-friendly, intuitive functions and features. The site, which has both English and Spanish language versions, allows users to create personalized and interactive Tribute Sites to honor and celebrate the lives of family members and close friends who have passed. Users can add photos, audio and video files, bios, location links, timelines of accomplishments, welcome tribute messages, as well as upload documents for sharing. Everything from backgrounds to fonts to colors can be easily customized to reflect the personality of the person for whom the Tribute Site is created. Each Tribute Site has its own custom URL to allow easy sharing of links via social sites, email, and texts; can be set-up as private or public; and made accessible for limited periods of time or indefinitely.
Through OurBeloved.Online, users can also provide funeral or memorial service details, and create a virtual services' program for live-streamed services. Links to organizations the deceased has chosen for commemorative donations can also be added. Services information does not appear after the service date, allowing the focus of the Tribute Site to shift from the service to preserving and highlighting uplifting memories.
OurBeloved.Online Tribute Sites can be set-up for 60-days, 6-months, 1-year, and can be renewed annually with pricing ranging from $39 to $59. For more information go to, OurBeloved.Online.
