"There is no better way to leave your
unique impression and memories for
those to learn from.
We did a memorial for my mother but
that was after she died. Nothing like
this, because we didn’t know about

bad things to happen, then a few of

with his own family someday."

I was resigning myself to dying.
After I thought about it, I realized
that I was doing just the opposite.

Nowadays, people are opting for a more lasting and personal way to be remembered. Photos and diaries are fine, but lack immediacy and emotion. Facebook, Youtube and other online media remain crowded, unstructured and lack privacy – exposing your details to strangers. When you pass, a memorial tribute may take place yet only tell your story from the viewpoint of others and omit many important experiences, lessons and acknowledgements. A Living Video Diary™ will allow you to express yourself today, in the first-person, and exactly how you want to be seen and heard. It is a completely new way to leave a lasting recorded legacy.
Imagine how it would be, if you could see and hear your great grand-parents, or anyone in your ancestry, answering questions and telling their stories in a concise, personal format anytime you wanted. The technology wasn’t around back then, but you can now do the same for your heirs. There is priceless information you can pass down to those that matter, and it’s as easy as giving them an LVD™ or uploading your recording session to your own private website.
Although our market is senior-based, there are many ages who come to us – especially as terminally ill. In most cases, they’ve accepted their reality and have memories and information they wish to leave behind. Others refuse to leave this world as a footnote. They desire immortality.
Working with this varied group, as well as personal family members, I am intimately aware of what people go through at this stage of life. The challenges of medications, changing health, final expense coordination, insurance matters and estate issues take time away from the joys once experienced.
Our job is to secure those joys, in intimate detail, and preserve family bonds forever.
