Online Memorials

Forty years ago it was commonly expected that an obituary for a loved one would be published in the print newspapers in the community or communities where the deceased resided for any length of time. But the continued decline in readership, due in large part to the Internet, has greatly affected this long-standing tradition. In fact, today's newspapers are changing the way they deal with obituary submissions: while some local newspapers publish obituaries or death notices at no charge to the family; others demand a rather significant publication fee, based on word count or the number of column inches used, and there is usually an extra fee for any photographs submitted for inclusion.

Tribute Videos

You may already be familiar with tribute videos, having seen one at the funeral or memorial services you've attended. But, if not; here are the facts: a tribute video is an artistically-crafted compilation of treasured family photographs, embedded into a themed background and coupled with beautiful music. Both entertaining and meaningful, the tribute video is intended to be shown during the funeral or memorial service. But it's also meant to become a family keepsake, and as such, a copy or copies of your loved one's tribute video will be provided to you and any other family members you designate as recipients. We proudly offer tribute videos as part of our stationery package.

What's Your Role in Tribute Video Creation?

Obviously, we can't create a tribute video of your loved one's life without your family's assistance. We'll be turning to you not only to provide us with the photos but also to tell us the story of their life. We're looking for the best quality photographs, and if possible, each should be labeled with the date it was taken so that we present life in chronological order.

Let's Tell Their Story...Together

Not everyone is a celebrity, but we believe that everyone's life really does deserve to be showcased. And we're confident you feel the same about your loved one; so we urge you to call us today at (412) 793-3000 to learn how we can work together to shine a bright spotlight on their life's achievements, passions, and pursuits.
