This is a social utility for reminiscing and sharing fond memories with people close to you of your dearest moments with parents, relatives or friends, which have departed the earthly realm but still live on in the mind.
Although Lifestrand is open for obituaries of all kind, it is not intended as a morbid necrology archive. Most importantly it is a monument, a shrine for honouring those connected to you, where you may stop and recollect tender feelings, where you can find solace in creating a space devoted to keeping the spirit of your loved ones alive or reaching out to others.
Why yet another social website, when I can just as easily connect with others on Facebook, Myspace and such? Lifestrand does not compare to these networking sites. It is a service which brings together people for purposes of celebrating the lives of those no longer with us, for commemorating people who have touched our lives.
