What is "The Story of A Lifetime"?

The Story of A Lifetime is a slide show presentation that reflects upon and celebrates life. It is most often used to remember those that are closest to us in happy times as well as in times of mourning.

Traditionally, funeral homes provide a service to families during a wake by having photographs mounted on an easel so that the attending guests can celebrate the life of the deceased.

We digitally reproduce those photographs and create a multimedia presentation that contains an automatically advancing slide show that can be displayed at the service. Guests may view the program at their leisure and are invited to take a copy of the slide show on a CD that will be available as a keepsake.

How is this different from what is available right now?

The Story of A Lifetime is a living legacy that will undoubtedly be the way families will chose to remember, and to be remembered, for generations to come.

Instead of just walking away with a memory, guests at services can walk away with a copy of the program on a CD. The program is a keepsake that will live on for far many more years than a picture, and is an interactive journey into the lives of our loved ones.

How does it work?

The slide show automatically begins when inserted into any PC and most DVD players. The first image is displayed and an audio selection begins. Once the last image is shown the slide show and audio starts over.
