Connecting Loved Ones Together, Virtually
We know that grieving for a loved one is hard, but you don't have to do it alone
"What an amazing gift you gave our family, during our time of grief. Thank you so much!" - Rachel
"Thank you for making everything so seamless. It's great to not have anything to worry about at a time like this" - Robert
Your Virtual Memorial Service
We will set-up and facilitate your virtual video meeting for your friends and family to join. We will ensure only the people you want to invite will have access to this private meeting.
You might also want to stream the memorial service with others to watch. We will provide you with the choice of broadcasting the service live to your website.
We will also keep a recording of the memorial service for you and upload it to your tribute site.
Creating a Meaningful Service
We will provide you with a personal support facilitator who will guide you through the process step by step.
Your facilitator will assist in setting a date and time for your virtual memorial service, creating invitations to send to attendees, and including information for your service on the website. They will coordinate with your clergy and speakers to set a vision and agenda. They can create custom slideshows, videos, and music.
Your facilitator will be present during the entire virtual memorial service to ensure it is smooth running. They will manage all tech, such as muting, unmuting, and spotlighting speakers and attendees, as well as presenting any slideshows, videos, or music during the service.
Your facilitator is there to support you. They will make their phone number available for you to call if issues arise before or during the virtual memorial service. Prior to the service, they will provide "how-to" resources for you and your guests, and schedule a rehearsal to practice the service and answer any questions.
On Tuesday, March 17th, 2020, Dave Kerpen's mom passed away at the age of 79. Losing your mom is very difficult to deal with. But losing your mom during a global pandemic, when she's quarantined in Los Angeles with her husband, you're quarantined in NYC, and your brother is quarantined in Washington DC? It's simply impossible.
Fortunately, Dave's wife and friends, led by Sam Nesbitt, stepped in immediately with a solution: Host a virtual, online memorial service for Dave's mom Rayni.
In just 2 days, Sam built a beautiful tribute website, and with Sam's help, Dave hosted an online memorial service attended by over 300 friends and family, and a virtual shiva attended by over 400 people.
A few days later, Dave and Sam realized that many other families would be grieving at this time, and unable to connect to loved ones physically. So they built and launched Remembering.Live to help you, a grieving family, during your time in need.
