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.
How It Works
We will guide you through the three easy steps to help celebrate a loved one who has passed. After you’ve chosen a location and created their biography and photo gallery, you’ll be ready to share with friends and family. We believe the process of celebrating a loved one should be simple and affordable.

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.
