I had been listening to Mitch Albom on the radio and he was telling about the wonderful things Ernie Harwell had said during his lifetime and how he hoped people would remember the man and some of the great things he said and did.
I decided that that same sentiment could be made about any of our parents or grandparents or best friends. THEY should have an opportunity to tell us about their lives and inspire us long after they are gone.
So I started a website, along with a friend and a web designer we knew, called “HereafterThoughts.com.” It was designed so that a person could leave messages to loved ones after they die. There was a “check in” requirement and a couple of failsafe backups so that messages wouldn’t go out without the client actually having passed away – that would be a disaster. But back then (and somewhat true now with our The Eulogy Writers site) we didn’t know how to get the word out about the service. After about a year of trying, we had exactly ONE client. Discouraged, we shut it down.
Today I discovered a site that is ten times better than ours ever dreamed of being. It allows clients (apparently all free) to record messages on audio, store video messages, plan your own memorial service, tell of his or her life’s highlights and adventures, and more. It is the site I wish we had created if we had more time, money, and skill. I urge you to take a look at it. It’s called “Be Remembered.” You can find it at https://beremembered.com It is a wonderful resource. I plan to sign up and use it myself.
