The void that re­sults from los­ing a loved one lingers; how­ever,de­spite the loss, sur­vivors are of­ten left with beau­ti­ful mem­o­ries. Vis­it­ing a loved one’s gravesite can pro­vide so­lace; how­ever, for many fam­i­lies, dis­tance can make this op­tion chal­leng­ing. Belove­dones.love, a new me­mo­rial and obit­u­ary site for Caribbean fam­i­lies, pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity to pay re­spects to de­ceased loved ones re­gard­less of prox­im­ity to their fi­nal rest­ing place.

Belove­dOnes.love pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity to pay re­spects to de­ceased loved ones on­line while also cel­e­brat­ing a fam­ily’s cul­ture by post­ing ac­cord­ing to its re­spec­tive coun­try. The in­no­va­tive site al­lows guests to click on their coun­try’s flag to post tributes to their loved ones that ref­er­ence their beloved home­land.

A first of its kind for the Caribbean, the site al­lows guests to up­load pho­tos that can be ac­cessed by fam­ily and friends around the world.The site in­cludes an obit­u­ary sec­tion to an­nounce the deaths of newly de­ceased fam­ily mem­bers. It also in­cludes a me­mo­rial sec­tion to re­mem­ber loved ones who passed away from as far back as 1910.

Cre­ated by Mar­lene Day, pub­lisher of "Kotch" magazine, the site helps trans­form the un­pleas­ant but in­evitable into an op­por­tu­nity for fam­i­lies to doc­u­ment their loved ones’ life and legacy. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit Belove­dOnes.Love.
