A Few Ideas on Giving Tribute to Loved Ones that Passed Away

A Warm Tribute Online Memorials by Warm Tribute Online Memorials

Creating an online memorial is a great way of giving tribute to a loved ones that have passed away. However, I understand that creating an online tribute may not be enough. I know when I think of what I have accomplished for my brother, it never feels like enough. However, it's not a feeling of remorse, it becomes more of a challenge and (in a way) empowerment that the possibilities of giving tribute to him is limitless.

I want to share with you all, some ideas I have come up with. Though I unfortunately have not had the time to accomplish all of these items, I believe it's still a good idea to have a running list, so here we go:

  • Donate money to a foundation that helps cure the ailment that took your loved one away: My brother passed away from a combination of Ulcerative Colitis and Budd-Chiari. If I can somehow help a family or friend out there to prevent them from losing one of their loved ones then I am all for it.
  • Start a foundation in the name of your loved one: If no foundation currently exists - create one and name it after your loved one. This is an idea I've had for a few years now, but I simply haven't had the time/money to start it. But if you have either, then I think this is a fantastic idea! I can just see the lit smile on my brother's face once I start one under his name and his response of "That's pretty cool!"
  • Write a book: This subject of the book could revolve around a number of topics. Perhaps it's a biography of your loved one or the emotions of what you are going through that you feel would be helpful to share with others. It could even be a collection of your journal/memories that you've posted on this site.

On a slight digression, I truly hope, for all of the members who have created and contributed to a tribute for their loved ones that passed away, have found some solace here on Warm Tribute Online Memorials. As it is stated in the About Warm Tribute section of this site, one of my goals is to lend a helping hand to those who are working through their time of grief.
