Unique and Empowering Funeral Services
Online Tribute Guide A Sacred Moment’s tributes are like an online memorial service for your loved one. Your obituary can run at any length, saying all that you want to say, next to a favorite picture. When you include a memorial page, your family and friends have a place to see more pictures, read a favorite verse, and share their memories in the guestbook. They can even light a “candle,” and when they do you’ll be notified by email. Whatever form it takes, your customized obituary will appear in perpetuity, and be accessible from anywhere.
