Funeral Services

The founder of Willow faced something unimaginable: the unexpected death of her father. In the midst of her grief, she had to take care of the funeral arrangements. While trying to honor her late father’s wishes and navigate the sales-driven funeral planning industry on a tight budget, she vowed to create a better way to do this.

After facing one of the most challenging points in her life, she created Willow as a response to an industry in great need of change. Willow is a registry for planning funeral arrangements after the passing of a loved one. Many families don’t know where to begin when faced with an unexpected death. Willow’s default registry list contains everything the family needs for planning funeral arrangements, and then goes one step further. Friends, family, and well-wishers are allowed to offer their monetary support on the application. Willow also supports donations to causes of the family’s choice, and provides a custom obituary area for loved ones to offer their memories.

Video Testimonial with Janet Sturts

"I couldn't be any happier working with Chop Dawg. They turned my idea into a product that I could show to potential customers and investors. They were always there for me, answering any call, email, or text message that I had, no matter the day or time."

Janet Sturts - Founder of Willow

For the grieving families, Willow automates the funeral planning process.

Using the default registry, the application guides families with everything needed (and the expected costs for what is required) to plan the service. Willow will track all donations in a beautifully designed, easy-to-use mobile application that takes the unknowns out of funeral planning.

Some of the technology that we supported when we created the Willow app

Willow was built as an iPhone and Android application using React Native and with REST APIs, supporting iOS 11, iOS 12, and Android 8, Android 9. For the administrator and server-side, we used PHP with Laravel.
