|Memories of a Lifetime|
A truly personal expression of love begins with the design of the funeral service itself. At the heart of a meaningful funeral is a truly personal remembrance—a celebration of what is unique in the person whose memory will be honored. Our goal is to make the funeral more meaningful to everyone who attends by helping families create a service that reflects their special memories.
Our unique Memories of a Lifetime collection is a one-of-a-kind remembrance, professionally created exclusively for you and your family to cherish forever. Let us help you organize, restore, and relive the most treasured moments of your loved one's life by sharing your favorite photographs in a custom slideshow presentation, a beautiful hardbound book, or video (DVD/VHS). Keep the memories alive in a keepsake that can be enjoyed by your family, yourself, and generations to come.
We suggest assigning this project to one family member to coordinate all efforts. Start by gathering your favorite photos. Check in obvious and not-so-obvious locations, including:
Think back to significant events in your loved one's life, as those are the moments likely to be captured in photographs. Consider:
The possibilities are endless! Along with your treasured photographs of happy memories, we can photograph pictures of your loved one's meaningful mementos, such as trophies, cars, musical instruments, or sporting equipment. You can also incorporate their favorite music, or let our caring personnel choose the most appropriate selection from our extensive music library.
Within 24 hours of receiving your photographs, your Memories of a Lifetime slideshow is prepared and ready for viewing during the funeral visitation or memorial service. We have equipped each of our funeral homes with the finest presentation displays and installed them in a fashion that will greatly enhance the visitation experience.
We take great care in making certain that each Memories of a Lifetime collection looks its absolute best. Whether your image is faded, scratched, or otherwise damaged, our highly trained staff will prepare it for display. Our state-of-the-art studio is second to none, offering an extensive line of photographic restoration services.
We have designed and created a facility with advanced technology that will accept any picture, any size, from prints, negatives, or slides. We can incorporate images from the smallest wallet-sized snapshots to the largest portraits hanging on your walls, digitizing them all into your collection. There is no need to take pictures out of their frames—bring them to us "as is."
We create slideshows from sets of 25 or 50 photographs. Be selective! Pick the one or two best photographs that capture the memory of the most important occasions. Editing now will result in a more emotionally meaningful, more cost-effective collection. And keep in mind the most important thing of all: beauty is in the eye of the beholder. These are your memories.
