One Man's Memorial to a Loved One May End Up Revolutionizing the Web

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - January 16, 2008) - is proud to announce the launch of, where mourners, families, and friends can create dignified memorials -- and celebrate the lives of the deceased. Truly unique, uses innovative technology allowing users to share photographs and thoughts to honor loved ones -- and features instant email notification regarding the passing of a loved one.

When Joseph Melohn and his wife lost her grandmother, they were flabbergasted. Joseph grieved, but wanted to memorialize her. He was dismayed by obituary notices -- they didn't seem dignified or to address death as a celebration of life. This is when Joseph had a "light-bulb moment" -- one that may change the way we remember loved ones.

Melohn created his own web enclave, attaining a delicate balance between memorializing and celebrating life. He launched; it quickly became a refuge where mourners, families, and friends create dignified memorials and celebrate lives passed ("Till 120," attributed to the prophet Moses, means to live life fully). provides space to share photographs, memories, and stories. It offers comfort and valuable information, providing opportunities to send expressions of sympathy (flowers, condolence baskets, food platters, cards or emails). Members can easily post mourning schedules, funeral home addresses, and other information.'s driving force is its FREE instant email notification service. Members, who can be anywhere, receive an instant email when a person in any area they specify passes. An instant notice goes out to family, relatives and friends -- via email, web-synced PDA, cell-phone or handheld device. For religions that schedule burials immediately, this is invaluable. Anyone who has ever missed a funeral, arrived late to one, or learned that an acquaintance had passed away months ago, also appreciates this service.

Members often hear from loved ones worldwide: reconnecting with a long-lost cousin, or reading condolences from a faraway friend, aid in grieving. After repeatedly hearing feedback like this, Joseph had another epiphany: draws on the same model of sites like MySpace and Friendster -- and that could set the standard in the way that we mourn, by utilizing the comforts of social networking.
