Memories Like This
Should Last Forever
Life can be viewed as a series of special moments connected by time. Struggles and achievements big and small.The extremes of both pleasure and grief. Relationships and events that may seem insignificant to some and monumentally important to others.
And when each life ends — as it must — it is important that those who are left take a very special moment to remember that unique life experience . . . and to recognize the contribution each individual makes to the community and world we share.
