Memorial services are busy, stressful, and often a blur for the family of the deceased. Often, during a funeral service, attendees will be invited to share memories of the loved one, and these will be humorous, touching, and interesting. But how to remember so many stories and insights?

These packs include 50 cards and 20 pens, in a beautiful ivory pouch to store these hand-written memorials as an heirloom. Each card reads, “My Special Memory of You”, and is lined on the front and back for maximum space.
