A place to celebrate a wonderful life.

Welcome to Ripspot®, a more personal, eco-friendly way to celebrate a loved one or pet who has passed away. A Ripspot is a virtual pin that marks a place that meant a lot to your loved one. Perhaps it was a beach, a city park, the place they were born, a ski slope, a golf hole, or their favorite fishing spot. Wherever it was, now you can drop a pin, create a biography and photo gallery, and share with friends and family.

A Ripspot is ideal for marking the spot where cremated ashes were scattered, and it can serve as a wonderful obituary. Simply locate, create and share.

Helpful tips and FAQs

  • Is a Ripspot a place where ashes have been scattered?

    Creating a Ripspot is a wonderful way to mark the location where a loved one’s ashes have been scattered, but a Ripspot is not dependent on ashes or a burial. It can simply be a virtual demarcation of a meaningful place. If you plan to scatter a loved one’s ashes and use a Ripspot to mark the location, we recommend that you check with local municipalities and private property owners before doing so. Some restrict the scattering of ashes.

  • Are pets allowed?

    Yes. We see dogs, cats, horses, even goldfish and turtles, as beloved family members. A Ripspot is a wonderful way to honor pets too.

  • What is the fee for?

    We believe your experience should be as simple and affordable as possible. We charge a fee because we do not sell advertising on our platform. The fee allows us to host content and continually improve our technology. A traditional burial in a cemetery can cost thousands of dollars, and while cremation may be a more affordable choice, there are costs associated with that as well. You can ask your local funeral director or cemetery for their price list.
