Create an In Memory Tribute

What is an ‘in memory’ tribute

Sadly, it is not uncommon to lose a loved one, friend or neighbour before we have the opportunity to learn about them as a whole.  Often it is only by attending their funeral do we get a glimpse of the history of their life.

Creating an ‘in memory’ tribute to celebrate the life of a loved one is a beautiful way of sharing the life story of one of our locals and keeping their memory preserved.

Two reasons you may create an ‘in memory’ tribute are:

To celebrate the life of a loved one and share there story with others to keep their memory alive. 

In addition to your loved one’s funeral notice; where family and friends can make a meaningful donation in lieu of flowers.
