Portraits ‘in memoriam’
A bespoke text written in loving memory
Losing someone we love can stop us in our tracks for a while, but sharing our feelings, stories and memories can bring comfort, balancing our sense of loss. Bespoke memorial ideas like a Portrait in Prose text, written with your words, mean our remembrances can be given permanent form, giving voice to the past while preserving them for the future.
My 500+ testimonials convey a sense of how meaningful such memorial ideas can be to those bereaved, family or friends, capturing their memories in time.
I might ask about all the aspects of our subject’s life that made them who they were: their personal history, family and friends and their passions in life.
We may involve just those who were closest to our subject to contribute their written responses to my questions, or a select few family and/or friends as well.
‘You did a beautiful job of capturing Phil’s warmth, attitude and spirit in those pieces. I hope to see you again, it’s a pleasure knowing you and working with you.’
Our text might blend a sharper focus, say individual stories, with a more thematic approach such as character traits, kind acts and all that’s most missed.
Choosing the final form our text takes is integral to creating a fitting tribute – part-framed as well as presented in a photo book often works well.
Whether a record of beloved grandparents cherished by future generations, or friends rallying having lost one of their own, there’ll be a bespoke text to match.
This Portrait in Prose written ‘in memoriam’ might appeal to partners, family and/or friends of a loved one, either individually or as a group.
