Grief is hard. When someone you love dies, unless you’ve done pre-planning, there is a multitude of things to be taken care of and done. Many people begin going through pictures and pulling some out to be displayed at the funeral or made into a slideshow. Those things are good for the funeral itself, but not something that others can take away.
While the small cards at most funerals have the basic info of the life of the deceased and the surviving members of the family, they don’t offer much more personalization. One person several years approached me about making a memorial for their father. Since then I have made several more for family and friends as well as others. These are all printed on tabloid sized paper and tri-folded. Multiple copies are then made so that each person coming to pay their respects can then have a keepsake of the beloved.
