Celebrating Lives

Celebrating your loved one’s unique life experience is important, but so is paying tribute to the love, the support, and the caring you shared. Grief can be overwhelming, yet finding the time to celebrate the life, and the love, can make all the difference for you, other surviving family members, and friends.

It's All about the Relationship

You knew your loved one better than anyone else, and you have the memories of your shared lives. Coupled with our years of experience, these memories give us the foundation of a well-crafted memorial or funeral service for your loved one. Honoring the life of your loved one can be a most loving, life-affirming, and inspiring act. Contact us today to discuss the possibilities


Tribute Videos

Your family photographs are skillfully blended with wonderful graphic images and music, to create an elegantly emotive cinematic video. It always becomes an integral part of any funeral or memorial service; and after the ceremony, the video becomes a treasured family keepsake. And this is good to know: we can make copies as gifts for family and friends.


Personalized Printing

Our Life Tributes memorial bookmarks, service programs, prayer cards, and folders can all include a favorite photo, poem or prose tribute to your loved one. With the variety available to us through Life Tributes, we can add a uniquely caring element to your service, so your guests can leave with a treasured keepsake. It’s tradition…with a twist.


Memorial Websites

The traditional newspaper obituary is quickly being replaced by the memorial website. We’ve taken the concept further than anyone else. Our memorial sites are not just a repository of family photos and videos; they’re Web 2.0 tools for connecting with family and friends, all in honor of your loved one. We invite you to take a tour, so you can see its power to celebrate connections, honor a life, and record the love you shared.
