I'm writing to let you know a package has been modified. I am renaming and reshaping the Memorial Package into a Tribute Package. This project is always evolving and I am always open to improving the 3 P's: Products, Packages and Processes. I am always open to hearing your feedback and making Eternal Roots better.
I conceived of the Memorial Package when I met with a colleague Melissa who owns a related business called Eternally Loved. Melissa is an event planner specializing in celebration of life events. When a loved one has passed, or when someone has a terminal diagnosis, Melissa creates an event honoring and celebrating their life. This enables you to focus on the celebration, and let Melissa handle the details.
When I met Melissa I wasn't set up to record the story of someone who had passed. It hadn't occurred to me. Seeing Melissa's project made me realize I needed to create a package where a loved one could do a short tribute video memorializing the life of another. I created the Memorial Package, an interview up to an hour long, where you could share the decedent's life story and what they meant to you. You receive the same video and book I produce with my other packages.
A friend of mine recently lost his dad, and I told him about the Memorial Package. He responded that his dad isn't here to see the video, and he would prefer to do a video honoring his mother, who is still here. I thought that's a great idea, and concluded the Memorial Package was too narrow in scope.
What if you want to shoot a video honoring a parent or spouse who is still alive? Rather than creating a new package and cluttering my offerings with more options, I decided to reshape the Memorial Package into something broader. Eternal Roots is still available if you want to record a video about a loved one who has passed - that isn't going anywhere. However, I am changing the package name to the Tribute Package. What if your loved one is physically incapable or unwilling to share their own story directly? This is a vehicle for you to do it for them.
You can learn about the options available at my Packages page.
If you can think of an angle that is not covered by the packages I have available, I am open to creating a custom package that suits your needs. Just ask!
