Our Story

On November 1, 2006, I spent what would be my last moment with my grandmother. She had been battling health issues, and the next day, she suffered a heart attack during dialysis. Despite clinging to life for two days, she passed away on November 3rd. Since I had a background in media and film, I naturally took on the task of creating a photo slideshow for her funeral. The next day, while working on the slideshow, I received devastating news: my cousin had also tragically died overnight in an automobile accident. In a whirlwind of grief, I found myself making two memorial slideshows for my loved ones.

This heartbreaking experience led me to discover my passion for helping others commemorate their loved ones. A week later, a local funeral home requested my slideshow services for another family, impressed by the videos I had created for my own family members. In that moment, I realized how deeply fulfilling it was to assist families in their time of need. This sparked my dedication to memorial services, allowing me to extend my compassion and skills to families nationwide.

Our Commitment

At Obitspace, we are committed to providing exceptional service and high-quality products. Our team is here to support you through every step of the process, from selecting the right template to finalizing your custom designs. We understand the importance of these tributes and are dedicated to helping you create something truly special.

A Personal Message from Hector Herrera, Founder of Obitspace

In 2006, I founded My Heritage Films, a memorial slideshow company in Houston, TX. After years of working with local funeral homes and families, I witnessed the profound impact that beautifully crafted tributes had on grieving families. This inspired me to offer even more ways to honor loved ones, leading to the creation of Obitspace. By expanding from slideshows to personalized print goods, I aimed to provide families with a wider range of meaningful and respectful memorial products that capture the essence of their loved ones.

Losing my grandmother and cousin in the same week was a life-changing experience that deeply influenced my commitment to this work. I understand the emotional and mental challenges families face during such times, and I am dedicated to making this process as comforting and stress-free as possible. Through Obitspace, I strive to extend the same care and compassion I offered my own family to families everywhere.

Thank you for choosing Obitspace. We are honored to assist you during this difficult time and are here to help you celebrate the life of your loved one with dignity and grace.
