absentFriends.com Offers Global Network for People Dealing With Grief


<p><span class="xn-location">CINCINNATI</span>, <span class="xn-chron">March 12</span> /CNW/ -- People dealing with the loss of a loved one can find support by visiting absentFriends.com, a social media Web site that brings together those sharing the grieving experience.   On the site, visitors will find practical tools and emotional outlets for their grief.</p>
<p>absentFriends.com helps the bereaved understand the grief process, express their own grief, find assistance in funeral planning and set up a free memorial site to commemorate a loved one.  "We wanted to create a single Web-based source - with global reach - where the millions of people dealing with grief can virtually interact with others going through similar emotional challenges," notes co-founder <span class="xn-person">Jane Bourke</span>.  "Our breakthrough site is a valuable source for the bereaved, whether their grief is occurring because of a pending terminal situation, a recent death or an ongoing sense of loss."</p>
<p>On the "Wall," those dealing with the death of a family member or close friend can express their thoughts in an interactive forum reaching thousands across the globe.  "It's common for friends of the bereaved to say they know how their friend is feeling, but in reality they do not," Bourke points out. "That's why the Wall is so integral to healing - it puts people in touch with others who really do understand the pain because they are experiencing it themselves."</p>
<p>An online memorial can be created on absentFriends.com to keep the spirit of a loved one alive across the miles.  Photographs, shared memories, tributes, music and quotations are just some of the elements of an ongoing memorial, accessible from around the corner or around the globe.  Similarly, funerals can be coordinated from a distance through the directory of funeral service providers, and webcasts allow for remote attendance, particularly comforting for those who are housebound or unable to attend the service in person.</p>
<p>"We envision absentFriends.com as the premiere social network built around death and grieving," states Bourke.  "Grieving a loved one is an important part of the healing process and until now it was a lonely process for too many.  absentFriends.com provides a truly valuable - and valued - service for the bereaved."</p>
