"I was unsure what to expect from a virtual Celebration of Life. What I experienced on Sunday was such an incredible sense of connection and communal celebration of our son. I have had multiple people reach out and express that this was the most affecting and 'connected' experience they had with any memorial."
- Dani A.

What People are saying
I was consistently impressed with the kindness, consideration, attention to detail and ability to adapt to our needs that you and your entire team displayed. It was a relief to be able to organize this without worrying about the technical solutions, even for a techie like me. It was a load off my mind, and I know it wouldn't have been the same without you.
It was so incredibly helpful and healing. Especially for the number of attendees, it was so smooth and allowed us to really focus on what the purpose of the gathering was, rather than the technical details. I want to genuinely thank you for your warm, capable, and attentive support so we could honor (our son) so fully and all together.
My parents are extremely grateful and asked me to thank you from the bottom of their hearts - they thought they would have to bury my grandmother alone, but instead felt like we were all there with them
The service was very moving for so many of those who participated or saw the recording at a later date. It was intimate in a way that funeral services aren't. People felt so much a part of the presentations. It allowed family and friends from Europe to California to be there which is not possible in our real world limited by time and cost. I believe it will set a new standard.
It was exactly what we were hoping for— a meaningful tribute to our mother despite the physical barriers preventing us from being together. We appreciate your smooth coordination and quick turnaround. It enabled us to be present in the moment. We are getting so many messages from our family and friends who felt it was a wonderful service.
Your company is amazing! And so caring! I can’t begin to thank you for the service you provided to myself and my family. You will always hold a special place in our hearts forever.
my journey through grief
Noha Waibsnaider, Founder & CEO, GatheringUs
Being a part of a large family means many celebrations over the years. But, in the last decade, our family was faced with several deaths. It was a deeply challenging time—grief comes at you fast and stays for awhile. It was the support of our friends and family that carried us through those difficult days. The people who showed up, helped us accept our new normal, and gave us the strength to process the grief and to begin to heal.
We realized that so many people wanted to help—but didn’t know what to say, what to do, or how to help from afar. I founded GatheringUs to help people receive the support they need and to celebrate their loved ones.
At GatheringUs, we create virtual memorials and gatherings, and provide free tools for you to share memories, fundraise to help with funeral expenses, and donate to charity to honor your loved one.
We encourage you to utilize our grief resources to guide you through this difficult time.
