If you are looking for a creative and unique memorial to create for your loved one after their cremation services in Murfreesboro, TN. why not write their life story?

This biography will not only tell and celebrate their life but become a keepsake and a record that can stay in the family throughout the generations.
But I’m Not a Writer
This may sound like a great idea, but you may think it’s not for you if you are not a writer. Well, no worries. You can still create a biography; you just may need to have someone else write it…and that’s okay. You could turn to someone in your family who has the writing bug or hire someone to write it for you.
And with that being said, the goal of this biography is not to have it placed on the best seller’s list (unless you want it to). It is simply an account of your loved one’s life to have on record for your family. Even if you are not a writer, feel free to complete this book alone.
What Information Should I include?
What information and how detailed you get for the biography is entirely up to you. If you would like to make this a very short project, then you could simply highlight all of your loved one’s major achievements and important dates. If you would like to make this into a larger, more drawn-out project, you could go into great depth and detail about their life starting from their childhood to the date of passing.
Get Others Involved
When working on this project, don’t be afraid to get others involved. Other family members, even those who knew your loved one in different ways such as coworkers, school friends, etc. can offer great insight about your loved one that you may not be able to know or remember. Don’t be afraid to reach out to others for information.
What to Do With the Biography Once It’s Complete
Once you complete the biography, there are several options for what you can do with it. You could have it professionally printed and bound making it a nice keepsake for future generations. You could also have copies printed and bound and give them as holiday presents to family members.
You could even try publishing it by a publisher or self-publishing it to have it sold in bookstores or online. The possibilities are endless.
While there are a ton of ways to honor your loved one after their cremation services in Murfreesboro, TN., writing their biography is a very unique and creative way to do so. Not only will you learn more about your loved one but you will have a lovely and informational keepsake that can stay in the family for future generations to enjoy.
