What are Virtual-only Services?
Virtual services are similar to traditional services: there are eulogies, speeches, and faith elements. Because the service is entirely virtual, we can customize the experience to create a unique and memorable service, entirely online. Families can include pre-recordings, slideshows, live performances and more.
After the program, we invite guests to share a memory or a story with everyone online. With the sharing circle, family and friends are able to hear from everyone from different aspects of someone’s life. It’s unique to the virtual service and quite beautiful.
We work with families to create unique slideshows, featuring photos, songs, and videos. These slideshows can also feature voiceovers, transitions, and any effects the families can imagine. All services are recorded, edited, and stored for the family forever.

What families are saying
The Afterword team were incredible to work with. Responsive, compassionate, helpful and thoughtful from the very start. They worked seamlessly and professionally with the venue. Many of our guests who joined us virtually remarked that they felt like they were right there with us in person such was their experience. I really can’t thank them enough for supporting us through this time.

Last minute, eleventh hour, and on New Year's Eve Afterword to the rescue. My father's service was on the following Tuesday, Afterword worked with me through New Years Day and the weekend to ensure my father's service would be flawless and flawless it was! I received many comments of the quality, clarity, sound, "camera work" of the feed. The online viewers felt as if they were in the room, participating in the service.

Afterword gave me the best service I could imagine. I would give them 6 Stars if I could. They listen carefully and respond intelligently and quickly. I think I was possibly rather demanding, asking for a lot, pretty much done my own way. The response was perfect, and the memorial for my late husband was quite satisfying. My recommendation is unconditional!
