Have you ever thought about how you want to be remembered upon your passing? What memories, photos and video you’d most like your loved ones to recollect? Letters, thoughts, messages you’d like to leave behind? Maybe even write your own biography for your family and friends to read? You can do all that and have it stored in an online site for free.
BeRemembered is a free online social networking service, where you can record how you want to be remembered by your family, friends and loved ones, even after you leave this life. You can record stories of your life, add pictures and video, describe how you want your end-of-life funeral event to be, even store private messages that are delivered to loved ones after you leave this life. It’s a great project for hospices and assisted living facilities, places of worship and other senior centers to help seniors (or people of any age) get started on telling their story and leave a loving legacy for their families.
The site is designed to be a vehicle for you to gradually collect, organize and archive your finest memories and thoughts. Also reflect on, and plan, your end-of-life celebration. Membership is free.
There’s a section on the site, My Bucket List, where you can set goals and track them. Maybe it’s taking a dream vacation or trying an adventure like skydiving. There’s Timeline, where you can capture your life’s events by uploading the stories, images and video that define the way you’ve lived your life. Say your last goodbyes here too in the section titled My Plan. This is where you plan for what comes after your life ends.
First step is to choose a guardian who will co-manage your account and the accounts of others you select to share all this with.
