Today I am writing to introduce the services of Eternally Loved, a company whose mission and name are similar to Eternal Roots. Eternally Loved provides celebration of life services. When a loved one passes, the survivors want to honor the memory of the decedent with a memorial service, but they have endured an emotionally and physically exhausting ordeal. That's where Melissa at Eternally Loved steps in. She has a system for incorporating the decedent's character into the celebration. She handles all the logistics and interfaces with the vendors. Melissa is an event planner with a unique niche. I was impressed with Melissa's organization and system when I met with her, but my belief in her ability was cemented when I recorded and edited a client testimonial (below).
I found Eternally Loved while researching local networking partners. When I first found the website, www.eternallyloved.com, I initially thought it was the same service as Eternal Roots, as the name was very similar, and it is also located in North County San Diego. After diving into the website I realized the service is totally different from Eternal Roots, yet our two projects have great synthesis potential.
I introduced myself to Melissa on the phone, then we met at a local independent coffee shop. We exchanged stories on how we started our projects and shared our work product. I was impressed with her organization. She presented binders with photos of the life celebrations she has conducted, complete with client testimonials.
Meeting Melissa inspired me to create a Memorial Package, where someone can create a video tribute to a loved one who has passed. Clients of Eternally Loved will receive a 10% discount for a Memorial Package at Eternal Roots.
Melissa asked me to record a video testimonial of her friend and client, Marsha. We set up in Melissa's back yard and asked Marsha to share her experience working with Melissa after her husband succumbed to cancer. Marsha was laser focused in her message and gave a stirring testimonial. My words can't do it justice, so please see Marsha's testimonial below.
In closing, if you know someone in Southern California who has recently lost a friend or family member, or someone with a terminal condition, given Melissa at Eternally Loved a call. She will handle all the logistics, so you can focus on celebrating the life of your loved one.
