  Frequently Asked Questions

 

Do you have a friend or loved one (or celebrity) that has passed away?  Would you like them to be remembered not only for the near future, but for years to come?  Why not create a permanent online memorial for them?

The MyMemorials™ service is a FREE service which allows you to create a web page as a tribute to anyone who was important to you.  Include photos, thoughts, memories, accomplishments, or anything else you'd like them to be remembered by.  You can add text, graphics, and even audio and video. 

Visitors can add notes and upload their own photos and memorabilia.  Based on a structure designed by you, visitors, friends and family members can contribute their own words, pictures, notes, comments and other parting sentiments about this person's life.  For example, they could add an audio message such as a poem, a reading, or an anecdote about some time they spent with this person.  If you wish, you can even let visitors upload their own photos, audio clips, video clips, and other memorabilia.

Provide immortality on the Internet!  This web page will stay online for as many years as you specify.  There is also an option to keep it online forever if you so desire, thus immortally preserving this person's life on the Internet until the end of time.  Friends, family, children and their children for generations to come will be able to see the real character of this person and of the life that they led.

An incredible way to create a lasting memorial and tribute to a person's life.   An opportunity for future generations to read, see, hear and learn about how they lived and how important they were to their family, to their friends, and to their community.

No advertising banners will ever appear on the web page.  Unlike some other online memorial services, this service is intended just for you and this person's legacy.  It has been designed to provide an elegant, tasteful and lasting tribute to a person's life.

MyMemorials™ - Frequently Asked Questions

How do I create a MyMemorials™ web page?

It's very easy, and requires no Internet or web programming skills.  You step through a simple question and answer wizard that includes questions about the required content and the structure that you would like to use for your web page.  By following the instructions provided, you can add text, pictures, graphics, audio and video, making as many changes as you wish until you are satisfied with your web page.

When will it go online?

The MyMemorials™ web page will be visible immediately after you enable the online memorial at the end of the MyMemorials™ wizard..

Who can contribute to the web page?

Anybody visiting the web page could make a contribution.  Optionally, you can specify that the online memorial be "moderated" by you.  In this case, you must view and approve all contributions before they will appear on the memorial web page.  You can even choose to be notified automatically by email whenever someone adds a photo, personal note or other memorabilia to the memorial.

How much does the MyMemorials™ service cost?

The MyMemorials™ service is a FREE service which allows you to step through a web page creation wizard, upload text, graphics, audio, video, and other memorabilia.  You can make unlimited updates to the web page while it is online and you are a member of PartingWishes.com.  The web page will be maintained for a given number of years, or permanently, as specified by you. 

Our complete pricing structure is available on our Prices page.

How can you offer this service for free?

Our costs involved in offering our free services (such as MyFuneral™, MyMessages™ and MyMemorials™ ) are covered by our members who purchase or upgrade to higher membership packages.  We are confident that once you have used some of our free services you will be convinced of the superior quality and value we provide and that you will want to upgrade to a higher membership package in order to make use of premium services such as MyWill™, MyPowerOfAttorney™, MyLivingWill™ and MyLife™.

Due to our membership pricing structure, all of our premium services are offered at very low prices, unparalleled in the industry.  We are confident that you will find them to be an amazing value, plus the added convenience of having all of your services available to you 24 hours a day over the Internet from any web browser in the world.  The complete pricing structure is available on our Prices page.

What will be the web address of the web page?

Our goal at PartingWishes.com is to have all of this person's friends, loved ones and future generations visit this web page for years to come.  Unlike other online memorial services, no advertising banners will ever appear on the web page, and the web address will be personalized.  In fact, we let you choose your own web address, such as "http://www.partingwishes.com/memorials/JohnSmith".

Can this service be used for remembering a family pet?

We understand how important a pet can be to those who have made it part of their family.  We have had many requests to provide such a service.  But rather than complicate the MyMemorials™ service we have created a specialized web site, www.ILovedMyPet.com, which can be used to create online memorials for pets.

How many MyMemorials™ web pages can I create?

There is no limit to the number of memorials you can create.

How secure is my information? Can it get destroyed or lost?

All of our data is securely stored in a highly encrypted format on database servers in the USA. To protect against catastrophic data loss, daily backups are performed on each of our servers to locations in Canada and the U.S. Hence, if any one of our servers experienced technical difficulties, the data would not be at risk.

Furthermore, physical protection of our primary systems includes:

  • Fire detection and fire suppression systems with dry pipe pre-action sprinkler systems
  • N + 1 redundant power supplies, providing dual power feeds and backup batteries, water coolant systems and generators
  • N + 1 redundant climate control, providing primary and backup chiller units, cooling towers, and water storage
  • Local network operations center (NOC) for monitoring all data center operations
  • 24x7 monitoring and support of network connection and server availability
  • 24x7 uniformed guard service with interior and exterior closed-circuit television surveillance
  • Electronic access at all data center entrances, including biometric hand scanners
  • Electronic key management systems and individually keyed cabinets

As you can see, we take the security and privacy of all of our member information very seriously.

What guarantee do I have that the memorial page will stay online?

PartingWishes.com has funding set aside to support the cost of hosting member information (including memorials) well into the future based on today's prices. This money is used as an insurance policy to ensure that even if PartingWishes.com ceases to accept new members, that existing member information will still be maintained. At today's prices (which we anticipate to fall) even if PartingWishes.com received no additional revenue, hosting of member data is secured for at least a generation. Our intention is to increase this fund to support ongoing costs for several generations into the future. It is of course difficult to forecast what will happen in the future, but as long as there is the concept of web sites and an Internet, we will be able to maintain your memorials online. We would also hope to evolve any memorials submitted to take advantage of any new technologies. Rest assured, we have every intention of being here to stay!

What countries, states and provinces do you support?

Most of our services are completely international.  They can be used by anyone in any country in the world. 

Services such as MyFuneral™, MyMessages™, MyLifeLocker™, MyLife™ and MyMemorials™ do not create legal documents and make no assumptions about your country of residence. 

In the US, Canada, England and Wales, we have worked extensively to ensure that the legal documents created by the MyWill™, MyExpatWill™ and MyLivingWill™ services are up to date with the laws in all of the states in the United States and the provinces in Canada, including: Alabama, Alaska, Alberta, Arizona, Arkansas, British Columbia, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Manitoba, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Nunavut, Ohio, Oklahoma, Ontario, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Prince Edward Island, Rhode Island, Saskatchewan, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, Washington D.C., West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming, and Yukon.  Hence, these services can be used to generate legal documents in any state in the United States with the exception of Louisiana, and any Canadian province with the exception of Quebec, and in England and Wales in the United Kingdom. If you are in Quebec, you can consider downloading a Quebec Will Kit from QuebecWillKit.ca.

Furthermore, the MyPowerOfAttorney™ service is available for all States in the United States except Louisiana, and for all Provinces in Canada except Quebec. In the UK, power of attorney forms are provided free of charge by the government.

Note that even in unsupported areas, there is value in stepping through the wizards provided in these services in preparation for a consultation with an attorney.  It is strongly recommended that residents outside of the above supported states/provinces/countries seek legal advice even after completing the wizards. Local laws in these unsupported areas have not been considered in the structure of the legal documents.

If you have any doubts about the legal standing of any documents in your jurisdiction, feel free to seek legal counsel in your area to have your documents reviewed.

How can I get more information?

There is a considerable amount of information included in the on-line help of the MyMemorials™ wizard.  This will answer most of the common questions regarding the steps included in creating the online memorial web page. 

For information about the other services available, or about PartingWishes.com in general, you can browse this web site or send an email to support@partingwishes.com.  We will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
