The memorial website Much Loved provides the facility for people to set up a Tribute Page in memory of their loved one.This free service helps you to express your feelings about your loved one in words, pictures, music and even video. It can also help all those affected by the loss to come together, sharing memories & supporting each other.
Creating a tribute page is very easy to do and only takes a couple of minutes. You can personalise the design, add memories as well as invite friends & family to visit and contribute to the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association in memory of your loved one. At all times you retain total control over privacy and postings, plus your site is hosted online in perpetuity so that you can keep it as both a loving and a lasting tribute. We hope that it helps you to remember & commemorate.
- Simply go to www.muchloved.com and click on Create A Tribute
- You can then add as little or as much information about your loved one as you like
- You can make the page private or public
- You will be asked if you’d like visitors to the page to make a donation to a charity, if you select Yes you will be able to select the IMNDA as your chosen charity. Simply type Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association in the search box when asked.
- You can then personalise your page with photos, music, words and anything you else you feel is a fitting tribute to your loved one.
Alternatively one of the IMNDA fundraising team can set a page up for you and then hand it over for you to update. Please contact us if you’d like us to help: email fundraising@Imnda.ie or call 01 873 0422.
The tributes are here to help you as you try to cope with the pain of loss. They help you and your family and friends to express your grief, share your special memories and commemorate your loved one together, regardless of the time of day or where you live.
Much Loved believes that there is often a sense of reserve that accompanies death which can make grieving worse. It is almost as though death is unnatural, something best forgotten. We reject such a taboo and believe that positive recognition of loss and mutual support are key parts of grieving.
