The definition of the word Memorial is: serving to honor the memory of a person or event. During a time of grief, so many wonderful stories come to light when we remember our loved ones. Unfortunately, this is also a time when it's hard to remember all the details that happened that day.
Anne will set up a quiet recording area during the memorial gathering and collect stories and memories so that they last beyond the day. Both the audio recording and the printed booklet will then be given to the recipent. Additional booklets would be available for $15 each.
$2000 plus travel expenses
