Reflections Program

More than a Life Story.

"Your life story is one of the most valuable gifts you can give your loved ones."

Looking back and sharing your special memories can be both rewarding and uplifting. It will help you appreciate the richness of your life, the people who have been important to you and the experiences which have influenced you. You will be creating something tangible and uniquely yours – the story of your life the way you want it told.

How It Works

You will meet with a specially trained interviewer who will guide you through conversations asking questions to help you recall stories that you would like to share with your loved one.

The format your published story can be: audio CDs, a flash drive, or a Legacy of Love Letter.


Why tell us your Story?

  • To enhance and celebrate your life journey.
  • To record stories and reflections on your life as only you can tell them.
  • To provide a loving legacy to your family and/or friends.
  • To discover a new perspective on your life as you look back through the lens of wisdom and time.
  • To expand your sense of purpose and meaning at this stage of your life.
  • To rediscover the essence of who you are.
