Two Memorial Internet Companies Partner In Time for Memorial Day
MemoryPress.com and Memory-Of.com specialize in eulogizing loved ones who pass away using the latest online and publishing technology. They've joined up to make it much easier to create a memorial website and memorial book to leave your loved one's legacy both online and on your coffee table.

We're very excited to further help (our customers) in the healing process by adding a service that allows them to effortlessly publish their online memorials into hardbound books

Provo, UT (PRWEB) May 1, 2008 --
This month, just in time for Memorial Day, the memorial companies MemoryPress.com and Memory-Of.com will partner their services.

MemoryPress.com, in Provo, UT, and Memory-Of.com, in New York City, NY, specialize in eulogizing loved ones who pass away using the latest online and publishing technology. Memory-Of.com, the online center for healing, allows people to create custom memorial websites and MemoryPress.com turns online collaborations of text and photos from family and friends into hardbound books.

Memorial Book
"We're very excited to further help (our customers) in the healing process by adding a service that allows them to effortlessly publish their online memorials into hardbound books," says Benjamin Gruber, Vice President of Memory-Of.com.

Memory-Of.com wanted their 70,000 families, already benefiting from their online services including articles by therapists, gift shop, bookstore, forums and custom memorial websites, to be able to take one more step towards healing by turning all their loving online memories into a beautiful book. Clients will instantaneously see their book, auto-filled with their Memory-of.com website content including photos, memories and eulogies. Then they can customize their book by editing and adding to the content as they wish. "We've worked hard to bring this to our customers," concludes Gruber.

Neal Harmon, President of FamilyLearn, the company behind MemoryPress.com explains the partnership. "The depth of feeling from customer testimonials, and the fact that MemoryPress.com is already offered as a gift by hundreds of funeral homes throughout the United States and Canada, convinced me that working with Memory-Of.com would be the right match."

Current technology has enabled mourning to become a community collaboration that goes beyond the funeral, and both MemoryPress.com and Memory-Of.com have connected their technologies with the people, in order to make that possibility a reality. "Working on the memorial book for my Dad became quite the family project," explains David Cates who used MemoryPress.com to create a memorial hardbound book. "I'll never forget one Sunday afternoon in spring when my Mom, brother and sisters were all together on conference call. I was sitting in a cafe on the West Coast, they were in the Midwest, and we edited the book together, in real time, on our respective computer screens. Ah, the magic of the internet!"

Cheryl Ford, a nurse, created a memorial website at Memory-Of.com in honor of a friend. "Losing a loved one is tragic; there are never enough ways to express the loss of a life," expresses Ford. "(Memory-Of.com has) made a beautiful place to help deal with the pain that is experienced when God takes a loved one home." Her website has 1,888 memorial "candles" from people who've added their thoughts to the online memorial.

This Memorial Day, as people all over the nation remember loved ones who've passed away, some people will be sharing their memories in a community of grief where collaboration helps ease the mourning beyond the funeral.
