NEW YORK, June 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Memorial, a new web service launching today in New York, is revolutionizing the obituary industry by creating a unique self service tool that gives users the ability to write & publish obituaries for loved ones as if those creating them were accomplished authors.
While also cutting the cost of publishing an obituary to fractions of what it would be to print in a local newspaper, Memorial sets out to bring much needed help for those mourning a loss. Printing an obituary in the local newspaper can cost hundreds of dollars, is black and white and is only available to view for one day. With death arraignment costs on the rise, founders Mike Davis, John Vitelli and Barry Mazza, New York tech entrepreneurs, feel like people need a break and a much better experience.
"Gone are the days of having to speak to some stranger at a funeral home or local newspaper to recount the life history of your loved one, reliving the sadness every moment along the way," says founder Mike Davis. "Now, with Memorial, you write the obituary on your time, with your own thoughts, creating a beautifully written obituary that is only made possible by using Memori.al Author (tm)."
Creating an obituary on Memorial is a simple process. First, the user enters in all of the basic information about the deceased. The user is then presented with a few topics that they can discuss in the obituary and then the user is asked a series of questions about each topic. Minutes later, all questions are answered, services locations are uploaded and a beautifully written obituary is ready for sharing.
Using Memorial to create and publish an obituary for a loved one makes sure the obituary you write is available forever, for anyone to view, anywhere in the world on any web enabled device conveniently on mobile or at home.
