Over the past decade, a host of memorial applications tied to cemeteries have been introduced to the funeral industry. They offer online repositories for photos, stories, and videos to remember loved ones who have died.
Most of these online apps require a QR code to access the information. What makes Eternal Remembrance different: the content is accessed by GPS (Global Positioning System) technology based on location. In this video, Tom McConnell, Founder and CEO of Eternal Remembrance, explains how this unique approach works.
Introduced at the 2019 ICCFA convention and expo, Eternal Remembrance provides a memento emblem that marks a special spot. It could be the final resting place of a loved one, a favorite recreation location, a place with significance for the deceased and loved ones. The family receives a matching memorial coin and a 12-digit code to set up an online memorial page.
The app was launched on March 17, 2019. The content that can be uploaded is unlimited. “It’s kind of like Facebook for the dead, ” said Tom McConnell, Founder and CEO of Eternal Remembrance. There is an administrative control function to make the page as public or private as the family wishes.
The Honor Network
Tom McConnell teamed up with Chris Heisler, President and Founder of The Honor Network, to honor military and first responders.
The Honor Network, a nonprofit dedicated to honoring heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice for family, community, and country, arranges complete funerals at no cost. They also cover other expenses.
Eternal Remembrance has joined The Honor Network, providing grieving military and first responder families with a complimentary memorial package. Using the app with GPS technology allows the loved one’s life story to live on for generations to come.
