Funeral directors know about hard conversations.
One of them just got easier.
The last thing a grieving family wants to worry about is whether they can afford to pay a proper tribute. When you recommend a Life Story on theMemories to your clients, you give them a chance to tell their loved one’s whole story free from the time, space and cost constraints of traditional obituaries.
Tell the whole story
A life is more than a list of facts. Every life is a story — one that’s richer than what you can share in a traditional obituary. When a loved one passes, family and friends gather stories, moments and memories to create a mosaic of who the person was, not just what they did. There is joy and solace in theMemories.
Life Stories are timeless
Once a person creates a Life Story, it never comes down. Friends and family can return as often as they like to revisit, edit and add to their loved one’s life story.
