When a loved one passes away, it’s hard to wrestle with the grief and the realization that they’re no longer with us. And as time goes on, we may fear that our memories of them will fade away. That’s where photos and videos become even more precious, offering a lasting connection to that special person.

A memorial video can be a moving way to pay tribute to your loved one. Asking family and friends for photos and video clips of the person can even bring people together, uniting everyone in a special task.
