When someone we love passes away, the only thing that is left behind is, you guessed it, their memory. With every day that passes by thereafter, it becomes more difficult to pass on those memories to everyone in one place. Luckily, we now have access to things like social media, where we can continue to communicate and share what we know. In today’s society, cemeteries are now having to keep up with technological advances as well. So much so that many have now begun introducing Memory Medallions, a QR code that is added to a headstone as part of a memorialization option. Take a look at why you need a Memory Medallion yourself.
On-The-Go Personalized Access
Now more than ever, individuals have become masters at creating daily work schedules that lead to high productivity and success. Of course, you still have to somehow include a social life and self-care time. When it comes to Memory Medallions, the convenience of on-the-go personalized access is set up for you. With just a quick scan from your smartphone, you can instantly go back to look at your loved one’s stories, photos and videos right at the palm of your hands. Even if you are tight on time and live quite the distance from the cemetery, a family member can easily share the personalized link with you.
All On the Cloud
Ease the burden of being the responsible one to save the deceased information forever. The reality is that we all move throughout our lives; accidents can happen with photos getting lost or damaged throughout time. With a Memorial Medallion, it is all on the “cloud”. A website address is associated with the QR code, so that everyone can be at ease knowing that they can continue to share what matters most without any physical tangibles. A good example is a recipe card that is passed down from generation to generation. No more having to look for recollections, as it is all in one safe place.
Honoring Life In a Whole New Way
In most families, tradition is of great importance. There are family reunions, special collectibles that are passed down and certain rituals that hold a special place in everyone’s heart. It becomes difficult, however, when a loved one passes and grief gets in the way. But what if we told you that you could all still continue with a memorial that honors life in a whole new way? That is exactly what a Memory Medallion does. It assures that stories never go untold and that the laughs and voices continue to play for what will last a lifetime.
