Lighten Online Memorial Services

Every family's online gathering preferences are different.
That's why we offer 3 different types of online gatherings.

For families who want all of their guests to join virtually, from their own devices, and interact live during the ceremony.

For families who prefer to pre-record all or most of their ceremony.

For families who are gathering at an in-person venue, and also want to interact with online guests.
