Years ago I received an e-mail from a women about a matter on one of my websites. In the signature area of her e-mail, there was a memorial link to a child who had passed away. I clicked on the link and on to my screen appeared a very nice web page telling the story of her daughter's life and death - and a pop up window with an ad promoting a scantily clad music star: unfortunate.
It was at that moment I decided to develop an ad-free site where people could put up memorial pages for their passed loved ones - telling their stories of the difference Jesus made in their life in this world. Out of that initial idea this site arose.
AsleepinChrist.org is your place to not only remember your loved ones, but also to inspire others with their story of faith in Christ and Jesus' faithfulness to them.
Putting a story on this site is by a one time donation that you determine the size of. This allows us to keep the site ad free.

Amber's memorial service was held at Westside Bible Church on June 10, 2017. Below, you will find a video of that memorial service and a couple of touching memorials originally shared by Amber's friends on Facebook.
Her faith was an essential part of her life, particularly in the last few years on what she called her “cancer journey”. Friends and family marvelled at her positive attitude and strength, but she knew it wouldn’t have been possible without her deep trust in God. And although relatively short, God blessed her with a bountiful and interesting life. This deep trust in God is evident in the following letter which she left to be read at her memorial service:
Lee was born on May 11, 1936 in Victoria, BC. He had a great spirit and was very brave - an inspiration to many others. Lee was a very thoughtful man, with a great sense of humour. His primary concern was always for his wife and daughter. He was also a hard worker, a DIY man, a visionary and enjoyed travelling and boating. A very prominent and popular ballroom dance instructor in Victoria. BC., he will be well-remembered by his many hundreds of dance students, who have all commented on how much they appreciated his kind, patient and thorough instruction.
