Keeping Memories Alive Together

Comprehensive Virtual Memorial Services

Schedule Free Consultation

As I learned by hosting my grandmother’s service, a memorial service is vital to gain closure and process grief."

What is a Virtual Memorial?

A virtual memorial service with Keeper is like an in-person memorial, but it’s conducted online with family and friends participating virtually via video conference. Keeper customizes each service to be as unique as your loved one, so no virtual memorial event is ever alike. Our virtual memorial services include eulogies, image slideshows, videos, and recitations of poetry, religious texts, or other passages. The service can also include hands-on legacy activities such as gardening, cooking or meditation.

Your Keeper virtual memorial service will honor the memory of your loved one in a professional, personalized, and heartfelt way.

What is a Legacy Project?

A legacy project is an activity that virtual memorial participants do together during the service. Our facilitator collaborates with you to create an activity that best reflects your loved one.

The legacy project can be active, collaborative, quiet, or reflective - you decide!

Sample Legacy Projects

GARDENING

Did your loved one have a green thumb? Gardening can be an incredibly healing practice, and a beautiful way to pay tribute to a loved one. Our facilitator guides event participants through an indoor gardening activity such as potting an indoor plant, planting memorial seeds or creating an indoor succulent garden. As guests work their way through the activity, the facilitator invites conversations on how this legacy project reflects the honoree.

A supply list and instructions will be sent to participants prior to the memorial service.

COOKING

Was your loved one passionate about food, or known for a signature dish? This hands-on activity is a meaningful and interactive way to remember a loved one and can bring you closer to your cultural culinary roots. Our facilitator walks guests through preparing, cooking, or baking a recipe of choice, while inviting reflections throughout from all guests.

A supply list and instructions will be sent to participants prior to the memorial service.

MEDITATION

Grief is like the ocean: it comes in waves; it ebbs and flows. Meditation activities typically take place at the beginning and towards the end of the memorial service. The first guided meditation focuses on grounding guests in the present and preparing them for the memorial service. The second guided meditation focuses on the honoree and the life they lived. Meditation instills calmness and clarity, allowing guests to better process feelings of grief and loss.
