I WANT TO SHARE MEMORIES OF
While visiting my grandfather’s grave, I came across another man’s columbarium that contained a CD with the words “dad’s work” written on it. Intrigued, I reached for my phone and tried searching for his name online but nothing came up: no obituary, no Facebook profile, no photos. Was he an author? A photographer? An engineer? I would never know the contents of that disk or the story behind the name on his monument. All I would know about this man was his date of birth, date of death and the “dash” in between.
This experience made me recognize that every dash has a story to tell. We are constantly sharing our personal stories on social media, online forums, and engaging with each other’s stories on blogs and podcasts. Yet, when it comes the conclusion of our own lives, our stories are frozen at our last Facebook post, our favourite moments are lost on a friend’s smartphone and our history lives on silently.
The Keeper Team has since created an interactive storytelling platform that allows you to collaboratively fill in the dash with memories, tributes, photos and more. You now have the ability to become the Keeper of your loved one’s legacy and preserve and share your entire family history with future generations.
I hope Keeper can help you preserve the stories that matter most to you.
