Willis Turner, CAE, Founder & Planner
During a time of loss, we really need our family, friends and colleagues to help us memorialize our loved one. When physical distances do not permit the closeness we may long for, it is fortunate that we can turn to virtual gatherings to help fill that void.
Our family recently experienced the loss of three very close loved ones within a few short months. We were challenged with geography and physical distances that prevented some family members from joining us for the memorial services. We had to be creative in coming up with solutions.
I have background experience as a funeral planner. Our business has been creating and managing virtual events for nonprofit organizations for the past 15 years. It became apparent that what we’ve learned through our personal and business experiences could be transformed into a service to help others in their time of need.
Our entire family rallied around this concept which resulted in the creation of Virtual Memorial Gatherings. It is my commitment to provide you with a reasonably priced service with no surprises. We’ve now helped hundreds of family members come together with thousands of their family and close friends through our virtual memorial gatherings. We’ll continue to work hard to earn your trust.
