Have the Talk of a Lifetime Free Tools

Have the Talk helps create a personal, unique service. We have free tools, videos and ideas to help you equip families to have peace of mind when remembering loved ones' lives.

While attending a funeral, you may have seen a collage of photographs, a memorial video tribute, or any other number of unique burial or cremation services. All of this is done to help make the funeral more personal, to illustrate what was unique about the person’s life and to help those who have lost someone special begin to heal.

How to Have the Talk

Ask the right questions.

Asking strategic questions can help begin the process of planning a unique tribute, think of answers to the following questions:

  1. What could your loved one do better than anyone else?
  2. When you think of your loved one, what do you think of?
  3. What were your loved one’s hobbies or special interests?
  4. What were some fond memories of your loved one?
  5. What was your loved one passionate about?

The answers to these and similar questions will help you pinpoint those qualities and activities that are most identifiable with your loved one. Asking can be difficult too. Have the Talk of a Lifetime can help spark the conversation.
