NIPANC has partnered with MuchLoved to help bereaved people to remember and commemorate their loved ones online in a beautiful and personalised way.
MuchLoved tribute pages are designed to give bereaved families a safe, meaningful space to remember their loved ones, to bring them comfort at the most difficult of times, and into the future.
Each page allows a family to upload photos, music and videos, along with messages of remembrance and memories. Pages can be totally customised and can be made as unique and special as the person being remembered.
Family and friends can connect wherever they are in the world, and reminisce, to celebrate the life of the person they've lost, and share their memories across the miles.
All MuchLoved tribute pages are free of charge for families*, and are theirs for as long as they want. This means that a family's tribute page can become a long-term memorial to their loved one.
Our tribute owners tell us that they find comfort in being able to visit their page whenever they want. One person told us it was like having a 'memory in their pocket', whenever they needed to feel connected to the person they had lost.
Some milestones and occasions can be particularly hard for bereaved families - Valentine's Day, birthdays and anniversaries, and special family occasions.
Tribute pages allow families to mark these days, by lighting a candle or adding a virtual gift or card to their tribute page. We've been told by our page users that this brings them comfort, and can help to make these days a little easier.
Finally, and crucially, MuchLoved tribute pages allow families to do something tangible in honour of their loved one. Not only can they choose to accept donations to NIPANC, they can also add fundraising events to their pages. Together, families can use their page to take on challenges and raise funds in honour of their loved one and keep their memory alive. Being able to actually do something can often be cathartic for families, and help them in their grief.
