What if, when you gather with loved ones over the next two months, you try something radically different?
This holiday season, what if you learned the personal stories, the histories, hopes and dreams that make each family member unique?
Today is the start of Talk of a Lifetime® month, created by the Funeral and Memorial Information Council to help families have important conversations about the things that matter most to them and ensure that life stories can be remembered and honored in a meaningful way. It’s an opportunity to discover how well you know your family; how well they know you; and how you each want to be remembered. And it can be fun!
Using questions provided by FAMIC and those we’ve discussed in our own families, Seven Stones has developed a downloadable set of conversation-starters to clip and share at your next family get-together. But don’t stop here: Write your own questions and make up your own rules or games for answering. Then tell us about your experiences with the Talk of a Lifetime® at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re excited to hear what precious memories you uncover and ways your loved ones want to be remembered for their time in this world.
