HealGrief.org takes a modern approach to the way individuals communicate a loved one’s death. Taking advantage of technology and social media, HealGrief.org brings family, friends and communities from around the globe to a local place to grieve and heal together.
HealGrief.org guides individuals through the grieving process from the moment a loved one dies. HealGrief.org starts by taking the place of the traditional obituary. At no cost, users create a funeral notice and can disseminate it to family and friends around the globe. From within the funeral notice, virtual candles are lit and memories are shared, giving users instant comfort transforming the funeral notice into a memorial and a celebration of the decedent’s life. Through this online interaction, emotions are displayed and discussed in a public and social way like never before. This not only changes the way we handle grief, but also its journey for a healthy grief recovery.
All of the functionality, information and resources HealGrief.org provides are completely free-of-charge and unlike others, HealGrief.org will not require a fee to sustain a memorial. Year after year, users are coming back, expressing their thoughts and lighting virtual candles in memory of their loved one.
