Add A Personal Touch To Your Life And Legacy

Sponsored Content provided by Patrick Kelly - Family Service Manager, Dignity Memorial

No matter who you are or where you are in life, chances are you possess at least a few defining characteristics – and they likely have little or nothing to do with your profession or daily obligations.

Perhaps you are a prolific – albeit frenzied - artist with a notoriously messy studio, or an introspective sort who just happens to also be a talented singer. Maybe you have found a late-in-life passion for interior design or pride yourself on being the penultimate, uber-organized “Super Mom.”

No matter what your secret skill or standout qualities, you are uniquely you - a true individual.

So, why should you be remembered any other way?

With Dignity Memorial’s guidance and assistance, you can shape the story of your life – your way.

Dignity’s caring and knowledgeable local providers understand that memories matter. They are at once the key to the past and a legacy for future generations.

That’s why Dignity offers the Everlasting Memorial, an online collection of writings and images that are gathered and permanently stored for those who knew you best – and those you never got to meet. It is a window into a life that can be shared across the oceans and beyond the boundaries of lifetimes, preserved and maintained in a lasting memorial.

An Everlasting Memorial provides a platform for sharing photos, poems, stories, memories and personal tributes from friends and family members. Not only does it create a shared space for those who are grieving – and celebrating a life well-lived – it also serves as an archive and a secure foundation for an enhanced genealogical record, since it can always be added to and expanded upon. Dignity offers a Care and Maintenance Trust Fund to protect your Everlasting Memorial for years to come.

And you can share your life through a video or slideshow that guests can view online or during your uniquely-you service. A hardcover keepsake book of photographs is also available.

Making the Everlasting Memorial part of your pre-planning discussion with a Dignity counselor ensures those who matter most to you in life get to share what they loved most about you – whether it be an amusing tale of adventure from childhood, a gift for the arts you instilled in others, a humanitarian spirit that inspired your community or a touching story of family bonds.

And the Everlasting Memorial is just another way Dignity Memorial providers offer a higher level of funeral care – before, during and after the funeral. For more information, or to view a panorama of lives honored in an Everlasting Memorial, visit dignitymemorial.com.
