With the rising number of COVID-19 deaths every day, Greenville veterinary surgeon Dr. Dermot Jevens and Icueity CEO Rebecca Heiss launched the tribute website, MourningAmerica.org on April 8.
The platform allows family and friends to grieve as a socially distanced community by posting obituaries, photos and memories of loved ones who died of the novel coronavirus.
“MourningAmerica.org is our way of giving people a voice at a time when they need it most,” said Heiss. “People are trapped at home, unable to be with their loved ones, and are now experiencing profound loss. We hope this platform allows them a much-needed way to share their feelings and honor the victims of this deadly disease.”
The website currently has more than 1,000 COVID-19 victims listed. Each submission is vetted by the site for accuracy before it is posted for viewing and messaging.
