Many of our family members, friends, and coworkers were effected by coronavirus causing deaths and lockdowns around the world.  

Special Memorial Tribute for Victims of COVID-19

If your family member was a victim of COVID-19 it’s important that you celebrate their life and legacy by registering for the Special Memorial Tribute (SMT). The Special Memorial Tribute will be simulcast via multiple forms of media conveying the significant loss of life due to this dreadful pandemic. The SMT will emphasize respect, admiration, empathy, togetherness, support, prayers and LOVE for victims across the world. 


The Special Memorial Tribute is a scrolling visual of pictures and a brief biography of each COVID-19 victim. The SMT will allow the world to remember transitioned loved ones in a more positive light versus envisioning them transitioning alone in critical pain and despair. Families, friends and neighbors can gather and celebrate the beautiful life of their loved ones during this momentous event. You will be notified of the date and time of this Special Memorial Tribute.


Registration is simple. Upload your favorite pictures with a brief synopsis of the victim’s life journey. This information will be added to the data bank which will be used for the Special Memorial Tribute. Also, you have to sign a Permission Form allowing the company to access and use all submitted uploads. 


A Keepsake Framed Certificate will be mailed for participating in the SMT. The Special Memorial Tribute is a vehicle for us to remember we are “One World United as One” facing this crisis together.
