Memorial Tributes to Loved Ones

online memorial tributes BOM

There usually comes a time, after the passing of a family member, when you realize your loved one deserves to be remembered, but you're undecided about exactly how you would like to preserve and safeguard their memory; which leaves us wondering how we can best pay tribute to the memory of a beloved family member.

Fortunately, we recognize today's technology makes memorialization both meaningful and affordable. Our firm offers you a variety of options to assist you in memorializing your loved on in the most fitting way with online memorials.

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.

Today, There's the Internet

Fortunately, online memorials have taken the place of the print obituary or death notice, and James Romanelli-Stephen Funeral Home offers what we consider to be the finest example of online memorials, the Book of Memories™. Created by a team of award-winning web developers and designers lead by a funeral professional with over 25 years of experience, the Book of Memories™ is intended to provide your family with a permanent place to pay tribute to your loved one.

More About the Book of Memories™

Far more than a traditional obituary—which is usually published only once and has no interactivity at all—the Book of Memories™ Memorial Website is a fully-interactive archive of treasured photographs and stories remembered from their time spent with friends, family, neighbors and co-workers.

You'll be able to invite others to visit the online memorial, where they can upload images, light a virtual memorial candle, send a sympathy card, share stories, write heart-felt messages of condolence, send a floral tribute to the funeral, or make a charitable donation in memory of your loved one, are all great memorial tributes to loved ones. And the built-in social media integration means they can then “spread the word” about their addition to your loved one’s Book of Memories™ using Facebook and Twitter.

We offer the families we serve a Book of Memories™ memorial website with the intention that it gives you a measure of solace and comfort during the coming months. To arrange for a Book of Memories® memorial website for your loved one, call us today at 718-845-5151

Memorial Stationery

There are many ways to bring your loved one's personality into their funeral or memorial service. One way is a tribute video, showcasing treasured family photographs. Another is the use of personalized memorial stationery items, such as memorial and service folders, prayer cards, bookmarks, and registry books.

We are often stopped by guests as they leave a service; sometimes they simply want to thank us, other times they want to remark on the keepsake memorial stationery given to them during the service, and the words they speak are a testament to the power in such a gift. We hear it time and again: "I'll treasure this forever", or "I really appreciate their kindness." Despite the element of sadness in the event, a gift of memorial stationery can go a long way in lifting the burden of sorrow and replacing it with comfort and a certain sense of happiness.

Where else can such a small thing—a full color memorial or service folder or personalized prayer card—mean so much? After all, you are giving them a tangible way to hold their memories close; memorial stationery can be a constant reminder of a life well-loved. Not only that; it can be a continual source of comfort during the weeks, months and years following the service.

Customized and Personalized

Today's families are looking for unique ways to personalize their loved one's funeral, celebration-of-life, or memorial service, and memorial stationery is all that, and then some. Our full-color, themed stationery items take service personalization to the next level–affordably.
