How Online Remembrance Benefits The Grieving
As times change and technology continues to advance, we realize how important online remembrance is to the legacies of the loved ones we have lost. Do you remember when a funeral or memorial service was the only real way to celebrate someone’s life? We understand the need for alternative ways to create lasting memorials that are accessible to family and friends all over the world.
Honoring Those We Have Lost
We know your families, friends, and pets mean the world to you. You share so many treasured memories with them. We can relate. We know you want a place to store all those moments, so they can be shared with future generations. Creating an online remembrance provides a permanent place you can do just that.
Whether you create an online memorial or an online tribute, you make it possible for family and friends to grieve together. It helps create a sense of community and support during a trying time, and for years to come.
Outlining The Benefits Of Online Remembrance
It is not necessary to go to a physical location to feel close to a loved one that is no longer with us. These days, the click of a button allows you to relive happy memories and feel closer to those you have lost.
Here are a few benefits to online remembrance:
Taking the First Step to Create an Online Remembrance
Now that you know why online remembrance can be beneficial, let’s talk about how easy it is to do. My LifeJars offers the perfect place for you to remember your family members, friends, and pets. Our app gives you the option to create legacies for people and animals.
First, by clicking on the Remembrance Wall tab, you get the option to create a legacy. Next, you’ll notice there is a candle icon by this option, since this is for those people and pets who are no longer with us. After that, create a Legacy to get started. Finally, add personal details about the person or pet you want to remember.
Once you create the legacy, you can edit the profile and add more detailed information. You also want to make sure you check the Allow Tributes box. This makes it possible for others to share their memories with you. The legacy will now appear on your Remembrance Wall. You can complete this process for as many people or pets you want to memorialize.

How to Use My LifeJars Memory Jars
As we mentioned before, one of the great things about an online remembrance is the ability to add photos, videos, and audio files. The My LifeJars app makes it easy for you to organize your life and capture your memories. This is where our jars come into play.
The Memory Jars are divided into five different stages: childhood, teenager, young adult, adult, and later life. You might see more or less of these, depending on how old the person was that you’re remembering. We feel it is important to make each legacy as complete as you can. Memories don’t have to be from just one stage in life.
For each memory, you have the option to add documents, photos, videos, or audio files. You can also add any other details you can remember, along with dates and locations. Recollections and sharing features are also available for each memory. This allows others to share their thoughts with you.
Adding Items to the My LifeJars Things Jars
My LifeJars also offers another group of jars to store other items in. The Things Jars are divided into six categories: personal certificates, vital documents, important information, business essentials, real life things, and significant bits & pieces.
As you can see, you have a variety of storage options. Personal certificates is a good place for a birth certificate, but you can also include any awards or honors your loved one might have earned. Store a passport, license, or will in the vital documents jar.
The other jars are good for other important papers, like insurance or business documents. Plus, you can also save recipes, poems, kids’ artwork, and pictures of keys (so your loved ones know what the keys go to).
The Importance Of Sharing Your Online Remembrance
After you have everything sorted out and put it online, then you can start sharing the online remembrance you created for your loved one. This important step alerts others that there is a place they can go to remember someone they loved online. It also opens up the option for them to share their memories and stories with others. It creates a shared space where others can grieve together, no matter where they live.
