About the event

About 3 years ago, I received a call from the son of a wonderful woman who had been a member of a church I served in Fort Wayne 1990-1995. Her husband had died of cancer while I was their Minister. I officiated at his funeral.

Now, some 28 years later, her son called asking if I would honor his mother’s request for me to officiate at her Memorial Service. After saying yes, I met with the family and was not surprised that they could not remember many details about her 100 years on this earth. Since I had only contact with her through Christmas cards, I really knew very littler about her life. Between her family and myself there was not much information for a nice Memorial tribute. This was not the first time this had happened over my ministry. Sadly, it was far too frequent.

A few house after meeting with the family I received a call from her oldest son. He has found a binder that contained her amazing life story with details her family never knew or may well have long forgotten. Thanks to her we had a beautiful celebration of her life! Her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren had learned a lot about the legacy of an amazing woman and the DNA that has much to do with who they are today.

You are invited to join me in charting your life memories and experiences a decade at a time. When we are finished you will have a TIME LINE filled with important dates, special memories and stories you and your family will cherish and appreciate!

This is intended to be an enjoyable and enlightening time.
