The Rest In Paradise Expressions mission is to provide a quality website that promotes comfort and companionship, during the period of grieving, following the loss of a loved one.


Rest In Paradise Expressions is the premier memorial website, created by R.I.P. Expressions LLC, and offered exclusively through funeral service providers and churches around the world.

R.I.P Expressions was conceived by its founder Lavelle Sheppard one day when he went online to view his Mother's obituary. He discovered that the guest book was closed and advertising space was available for sale next to the memory of his Mother. While respecting the need to pay for the space, he wondered what else was out there that could serve both purposes. It was then that Rest In Paradise Expressions was born.


We here at R.I.P. Expressions view death as a part of the cyclical nature of life. We propose, that despite the accompanying overwhelming feeling of loss, it is at this time we are still granted the opportunity to celebrate the life and love we shared with our family member or friend. Therefore, we wish to assist in bringing families together during this time and keep them connected. By partnering with funeral service providers around the world, who are on the front-lines of servicing our primary consumer, our product becomes immediately available to those in need. R.I.P. Expressions further seeks to ease the stress of this time, by providing access to quality providers of relevant services and others who are experiencing similar losses- all facilitated through the convenience of modern technology.
