Uncle Jimmy recently died. In preparation of his funeral, my contribution was to introduced an idea of "My One Favorite Thought" to add along with the traditional photo books, sign-up directory and flowers. It turned out to be a nice, soothing aspect to fill in those empty moments when a visitor doesn't know what to say or do.

I provided two different folders to display in two different areas of the room where viewing was being held. Each folder had a cover sheet with his name on it, and directed all to leave a message about their most treasured memory of the deceased.

Each folder had index cards to write the given thought on. I choose index cards so that the memories could later be put into the sleeves of a picture album.

I think that is an outstanding idea. Thanks for sharing it! I used that idea for my Mom's 80th birthday celebration with great results. I have enjoyed re-reading them many times.

Wish we'd thought of this for my mom's memorial service back in 2006. My sister Brenda would've found such a book very comforting, since she took our mom's loss the hardest.
