Building a Legacy of Memories

When someone we love dies, we miss them terribly. There is a hole in our heart which it seems nothing can fill.

Except our memories. They can reside in your heart, giving comfort and easing sorrow.

They are a true gift to us in the dark days after a loss. Even years later, our memories enrich our lives, and in the words of the writer, Anne Rice, “No matter how long we exist, we have our memories. Points in time which time itself cannot erase. Suffering may distort my backward glances, but even to suffering, some memories will yield nothing of their beauty or their splendor. Rather they remain as hard as gems.”

How can you preserve them, both for yourself, and for the generations to follow, as part of your pre-arrangements?

With a Book of Memories™, your survivors can create a permanent online memorial archive of images and words, in your honor.


Help Them Out

If you start gathering photos, and writing down memories today, you’ll be giving your family a head start on building a complete Book of Memories™ in your honor.

It’s a great way to bring everyone together to celebrate your life, because it won’t just be your memories that are recorded. Invite other family members and friends to participate in building a legacy of treasured memories that will be available to them in the years after your passing.

The writer and video game developer, Takayuki Ikkaku shared this thought about the power within a memory. “Memories can be sad, but sometimes they can also save you.”  

Take the time to remember, today. If this sounds like a fantastic way to ensure your family has an unforgettable, priceless legacy of memories to comfort them in the future, then call us. We’ll help you get started.
