What is the Book of Memories™?

The Book of Memories™ is the most advanced permanent online memorial available for those wishing to pay tribute the memory of a loved one, friend or co-worker and we are pleased to make it available to the families and communities we serve.

The lighting of a Memorial Candle provides a gesture of sympathy and support to the immediate family during their time of need; but also illustrates, for future generations, how their loved one brightened the lives of those they knew and loved.

The poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning wrote, "I love thee to the level of every day's most quiet need, by sun and candle light...I love thee with the breath, smiles, tears, of all my life." When you take the time to light a Memorial Candle in tribute to someone who touched your heart and made a difference in your life, you are leaving a visual record of the depth and breadth of a connection made; a meaningful connection which you will long remember and treasure. If you wish to light a Memorial Candle now, click here. A permanent notice of your tribute will remain on the Book of Memories™.

Other features of the Book of Memories™ allow you to share a story, send a message of condolence or print sympathy card, and upload pictures. If you have any questions about how to use any of these many features, please speak to any one of our helpful staff.

Family Log-in

The Family Interactive features takes the Book of Memories™ far beyond a convenient and informative place to learn about service information at the time of the funeral. This lasting memorial allows authorized family members to securely access their loved one's Book of Memories at anytime to expand and grow their loved ones tribute.

Ask your funeral director about the ever advancing features of the Book of Memories™ and how to receive a secure user name and password to this section.

Request a Book of Memories™ Memorial Website for a Loved One
