search cancel – Share your Memories

Respectance.comRespectance is a tribute site dedicated to honoring the memory of those who have passed away. The site promotes itself as universal means to share and relive memories which spans time and distance.


Community members are encouraged to submit photos, text, comments and images. The departed get a memory page which family members and friends can use to assemble a video homage using photos and music. All videos except those from YouTube can be downloaded; each Tribute remains under the control of whomever created it, so it’s up to that person to make it public or keep it private. There are community support groups to join and users can search through the pages and be friend of other Respectance members. Members can also start a blog and write about their experiences/feelings. Currently the site features a small but growing number of tributes, with pages for celebrities such as Michael Landon and Sonny Bono. The site is absolutely free to use. In Their Own Words
