My daughter, Lucy, died on May 30, 2010.  She was 36 years old.  Needless to say, it was devestating.  In our grief, we contacted the local newspaper to place an obituary and were told the cost would be $10.73 per line, consisting of 30 characters, including spaces, per line.  With just a few lines the cost was over $200.00.  If we wanted to add a picture, that would be an additional $115.00 -  That's just for one day!
In memory of Lucy, I have begun a new approach to obituaries.
"Lucy's Gift"  is an opportunity to remember a loved one without having to pay for an expensive obituary.
There is no limit to the length of the text or the number of pictures you can include in the obituary.  Simply email the pictures and text of your loved one and we will create a beautiful memorial for you. 
Your memorial will be placed below the last one on the page.
Click "obituaries" at the top of the page to see how I set up Lucy's.
Your memorium will remain on the site as long as you like and it will be seen by anyone who has internet access...not limited to the circulation of one newspaper.
To find a memorial, simply click on the "Obituaries" page and at the top of the page, click EDIT then FIND.  Key in the name of the person you seek.
A single charge of $25 covers all costs and can be paid using visa, mastercard, Amex, Discover or PayPal.
