Why create an online memorial and/or post?

You know, I think a good amount of people have a tendancy to be hesitant when they’re about to create an online memorial or make a post simply because they don’t know if this is the “best” method of immortalizing your loved one.

I even second think my posts at times simply because the memories I have feel so personal and dear to me that I wouldn’t want anyone else but Eddie and I to know about them.  And then I realize that that mentality is understandable and all, but ultimately, your memories will always be yours whether you share them with others or not.  When you do decide to share them though, I believe allows others to know your loved one (in my case, Eddie) in a different facet.  That’s just another way of ensuring he gets immortalized forever.

Don’t get me wrong, there certainly are memories I keep to myself or write a personal note to Eddie about.  However, the ones I do share, I believe in a way, can only help sustain Eddie’s existence in our world.

Web Site Redesign

Though I don’t have as much time to make updates to this site as often as I would like, I hope everyone enjoys the new design and layout. Thank you to everyone who has sent me a compliment. But please don’t stop at compliments. I am always striving to enhance this site as often as possible, so please submit your ideas of how I can improve your experience.

I am working on redesigning the dashboard as well as the tribute pages. I would also like to create a feature that alerts all your members of a new post. So please look out for those updates in the future.

Thank you,
Eddie’s little brother

April 7th and November 27th

Since Eddie’s passing, there are two dates that tend to motivate me to be more productive.  Those dates are April 7th (his birthday) and November 27th (the day he passed away).  Most people tend to use either their own birthdays or New Years Day to jump start their productivity, but I choose these days because I want to be able to keep my promise to Eddie and continue to make him proud.

So, with April 7th approaching all too soon, I want to make people aware that I have been setting up new projects for myself and expect to see improvements to this site as well.
