Now and then we are fortunate enough to come across people who have “The Ripple Effect”.

The Ripple Effect:  Putting your energy into others by generously sharing your passions and beliefs.  Your positive effect on others can be followed outwards, incrementally influencing and changing people’s lives.

A Celebration of Life Idea, A Memory Tree, to Capture Memories

A memory tree is a place to capture special memories of your loved one. Family and friends take a card and write their memory on the card and then tie the card onto the tree branch. After the service, the tree can be put in a special place where you can go to it and read all the memories shared or you can take off the cards and put them in a special box where you can go back and read them from time to time.  For people that prefer not to be given flowers, this would make a nice memorial or funeral do-it-yourself gift.
