About 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 in 2018 to help people receive the support they need and to celebrate their loved ones. At GatheringUs, we create virtual funerals 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.
