Testimonials

When my mom passed, one of my most panic-inducing fears was that after time she would not be remembered. I wanted a way for her to be memorialized that would be accessible to family and friends across the country, and for my young children, when their memories of her started to fade. The Legacy Memorial Website was the perfect vehicle to meet these goals.
