Alternative Angel Sites

This is what I have found:

Virtual Memories...http://www.virtualmemorials.com/
This site costs $55 which features music, guestbook, pictures and has a nice feature which shows Remembrance Days of the Angels as well as divisions: age, anniversaries, heroes, etc. You will find Jill's son Jay on this site:
http://www.virtualmemorials.com/main.php?action=view&mem_id=16144&page_no=1

Gone too Soon...http://www.gonetoosoon.org/
This site relies on donations and is free...They have candles, music, videos, photos, discussion board, etc. You will find Pat's Son Ricky McCorkle there:
http://ricky-mccorkle.gonetoosoon.org/memorial/

Last Memories...http://www.last-memories.com
This website is Free and once again very similar to memory of but Kim has told us you can add more than one song to the pages while you are viewing which is a nice feature. Kaylin Mathews & Keara Hart are featured on this site.

http://keara-hart.last-memories.com/

Remembered Forever...http://remembered-forever.org
This website cost approx. $100 and is very similar to memory of with all the same features including a Greif Forum. The tabs are even set up exactly like memory of.

Christian Memorials
http://www.christianmemorials.com
This site is similar to memory of as well but don't be scared of the prices...they vary from $29 Basic to $300 unlimited which allows more videos, photos and custom pages than the more basic plans. There are categories (brothers/sisters, tragic events, etc. and you can leave flowers, light candles and I have noticed they have a poetry tab which is very nice and has often been suggested for our memory of site. Also there are custom pages which allows you to vitually build the site around your Angel.

AngelFire
http://www.angelfire.com/ab3/grievingparents/
This site is free and a basic site to add your Angel too...doesn't appear to be as extensive as the others.

Find A Grave
http://www.findagrave.com
This website which is very helpful for Genealogy and features where your Angel has been laid to rest-- a type of virtual cemetary online. But it is more than that as you can leave flowers/messages, add photos and communicate with other members and it is free. You will find many of our Angels there:
Lisa, Nicky, Timmy, Ricky, Gerrick, Tony and Mark..That I know of. From that site I have created a site for my mother and for my girls father. We have also volunteered for photo requests for members who live in a different city than their loved ones and want to complete their page. At first it was "different" visiting other cemetaries but has become very rewarding when you see how appreciative the family members are to have their loved ones marker displayed on their page. It was the site we thought would push our families over the edge, "Now they are visiting other cemetaries and taking pictures of graves!" Oh well whatever gets you through is what we say!


Precious Memorials http://www.preciousmemorials.com
Angel Families http://www.angelfamiliesonline.com/

Both websites has so many things to offer and are very extensive which features: online support group and many areas of grief and support from chat, discussion, candles, prayer requests and angel sibling support through a newsletter. Very nice sites that when you have time to explore will find many wonderful families/Angels and ideas. Both take some time to navigate through due to their size but well worth it.

Okay do I sound like a tour guide now? Maybe the zoo will give me a job riding the train throught he park!!! Luv ya guys and hope this helps!

Re: Alternative Angel Sites

Good-afternoon all,
I don't know if you've tried to go back on memory-of yet or not, but its still infected as we speak. Tina Tomkin just went on there about 15 min. ago and her norton 360 blocked a downloader which is a trojan so its still there. Also I talked with Margaret Buonpane and she just got two virus's last night and her brother had to get them off for her , she said it almost caused her computer to crash. So I went to norton safe web and checked it out again and it still shows 36 threats so if I was any of you I wouldn't be going on memory-of until norton says its safe. These virus's and trojans keep coming back on. It's not safe to go on it at all. Even though Henry said it was safe its not. Please be careful and stay off so you don't pick up any virus and spread them on. I don't know for sure all the details but I do know its not safe.

Re: Alternative Angel Sites

Re: Alternative Angel Sites

Laura you can customize on last memories too. You can also add extra pages. I added one for Kaylin's poems and one for the poems written for and about her. So now I need to add the poems.

Laura can you and Shirley add the videos on her page that you made? For some reason when I try to embed the code from you tube it will not paste. I had this happen on memory of as well so I don't know what is up with that. I did send an email to ask if they could help me with that.
Bobbie if you do a permanent site you can put a donation button on your page. I don't know exactly how that works yet since I am waiting until I get my 503c approved but maybe it could be set up to collect dontions for MOMS. I know we are trying to set up a non profit in Kaylin's name and when we do I am adding that button. We are having her program set up to receive donations that will then be divided between the two groups that we belong to (MOMS and FDLFD) Just a thought. I just couldn't wait for memory of to get fixed. I am having withdrawal. When it is fixed, we will be back to two sites again.

Re: Alternative Angel Sites

Hey I was reading all your posts about different sites and stuff, I can't start a whole new one again it's just to painful to do. I really liked memory-of.com site because of the candles and the graphics you can add. I don't have extra money right now, but I do have another site for Timmy that I haven't really used as often. It was legacy.com They don't have as much different things you can do, but at the time I did Timmy's it was free and will be free for me permanently I think they now charge but it looks like it's 50% of the price right now. But here is Timmy's site :

http://memorialwebsites.legacy.com/TimmyClarkMemorial/Homepage.aspx

Like I said you don't get much options of doing different things like different songs, but memory-of didn't work anyway LOL, but I like being able to add graphics for the holidays and light candles for just not Timmy but all our angels. So for now I'll be going to his legacy.com site until memory-of fixes their problems.

Re: Alternative Angel Sites

I do understand Bobbie. I would never leave memory of...it will always be in my heart and my favorite as the wonderful school Lisa attended selected that one and started it for her in the days that followed Lisa's death. Also I agree we need to support memory of for Debbie & the Moms and I offered the other sites only as supplements until Memory Of gets fixed. We are all missing our Angels, Candles, etc. and the communication we have had with other moms. We now have 3 sites (1 is free) for Lisa and have met different people on each site. We have met many of the AngelsOnline family (which we haven't joined yet) and I cannot say enough about those moms who are like ours so compassionate and understanding. They have a very large network and if you ask them for a candle request I guarantee you will get 20 candles in a blink--Just ask Barb!...most of them are all Memory Moms having more than one site for their Angels. We will always stand behind the Moms & Debbie but I must mention one thing: Memory-of has never notified its members of the technical issues which has led to many viruses and many lost computers which have crashed. Many moms have lost all their data...files, folders, photos...not to mention their hard drive which I feel can be replaced it is all the others that are gone forever because of their negligence. Gramma Rose's Angel Moms and I had been writing letters to find out what was going on weeks ago and they assured us everything was okay and still do despite the facts in front of us. That concerns me..their lack of concern for us. In this type of business you should be more aware of you customers.
In the meantime we did start a new site for Lisa, as a supplement, and it is in the initital stages:

Love ya all...Laura & AV

Thanks Kim I haven't totally explored everywhere yet but I will! There seems to be so much more to see and I did download my videos but not via the code but from a wmv file that I have saved in my computer...do you have the video in your computer or just on line? I know Shirley has hers in file form as she sent me the one more day one and I will be downloading that today on Lisa's site. Let me know.

Re: Alternative Angel Sites

Laura I had mine as codes only. You had to put it on memory of for me since I couldn't add there either. I don't know why I can't copy and paste from you tube. I hope they answer soon. :) I was able to add what I had saved that I made. If you get a moment can you add your MOMS to her video site for me? It is set so others can add things to it.

Shirley can you add the one more day and the birthday to her video page on last memories? If not it is ok I will keep trying but I would love to have them there.

That was my concern with memory-of. If Laura had not told me about the problems I would still not know. Seems to me that not informing your clients will only prolong getting the problem fixed. I was bothered by not being notified.

Re: Alternative Angel Sites

Kim,
I don't see anywhere there is a place to add videos from a viewer stand point...just photos. I tried to send you the file but I think it was rejected. Let me know I can do it from here if you want or if you have an idea. Laura
