This paper accompanies the creative thesis website EternityFields.com Online Cemetery and Memorial. Included in the paper is the theoretical foundation for creation of this website as well as a detailed analysis of the steps involved in its development. The primary purpose of this website is to give friends and family members of the deceased a way to mourn and pay their respects regardless of their current location. An obvious benefit of creating a website as a means of remembrance, as opposed to a video, is that it has the ability to be expanded upon and modernized thereby preventing it from being outdated or outmoded.
