Online Memorials

Some one I know recently passed away and his friends set up an online memorial for him over at http://www.memory-of.com

The site lets friends and family share stories, pictures, and videos of the deceased. The comments can be absolutely gut wrenching and usually include the name and relationship of the commenter. I have never read anything so emotional and powerful than the writings of a Mother on her lost child.

I'm not sure if I'd personally be comfortable grieving in such a public way but many are finding solace in it.
