Welcome to the place where we celebrate the lives of loved ones. This is a location where you can create a permanent record that tells the story of someone you cared about who has passed on. This is one of the most important sites on the internet, dedicated to recording the story of ordinary lives. We believe:



  • All life is sacred. No one is unimportant.
  • All lives are worth remembering and celebrating
  • There are heroic elements in all lives.
  • Their story should be told and preserved forever.


So, help us build this site and join Passedfaces.com. Membership is free until November 10, 2008. After that time, our only fee ever will be a onetime charge of $29.99.
