Getting started - Creating a minimal Life Profile on Remember Always

by : Norm Bowen - 18-Dec-2017

At times, we put things off because we don’t have a block of time that allows us to complete that task. You may have been thinking about creating an online memorial for a loved one, but think you don’t have the time. This post explains how you can get started to get the memorial created, and then incrementally add to it over time.

When creating a Life Profile (online memorial) for a loved one on the Remember Always site, the minimum information required is as follows,

  • Your loved one’s name - First and Last names (Middle name and Nick name are optional)

  • Date of birth & Date of death

  • At least one picture of your loved one

  • And a biography

The biography is somewhat like an obituary, and can be as long or short as you would like it to be. The biography is intended to be a summary of a person’s life, but you do not need to start off with every detail. You can start with even just one short sentence and then add to it later.

One of the great things about the site is, you will be able to update the person’s Life Profile, any part of it, at any time. You can start off with just the basics, and then add more details and adjust your wording over time until you think it’s perfect.

To create a minimal Life Profile, do the following:

Step 1: Get the minimum required information … which should be easy for you to get …

  • Name (First & Last) of your loved one

  • Date of birth

  • Date of death

  • At least one picture of your loved one

Step 2:

  • Create the profile, and enter the minimum information required above.

  • And then create at least one sentence to describe your loved one in the Life Bio section of the profile. Remember, you can update by changing or adding more at any time.

Here are 3 examples of minimal biographies that you could use to complete your loved one’s Life Profile.

  • John Doe was born on June 17th, 1921 and passed away on August 15th, 2012.

  • Jane Doe of El Paso, Texas, passed away peacefully on August 15th, 2012 at the age of 91. She was born on June 17th, 1921.

  • John Doe of Sarasota, Florida went to meet the Lord peacefully after a brief battle with cancer on August 29th, 2010 at the age of 81. John was born on July 8, 1929 in Denver, Colorado, and later moved to Sarasota, Florida where he lived with him family and worked as an accountant.

Again, you can do the minimum, and then add to it later.
