For the past - as we age, it is natural to reflect on our lives and wonder what impact we will have and how we will be remembered. Telling your life story is therapeutic, providing a platform to share your treasured memories and to express words of wisdom, their aspirations for the family, their values, and their love.
For the present - When a family member considers recording their personal history, the entire family joins in on their journey. Recording memories solidify them into more than thoughts that can change or alter in perspective over time.
For the future - Individual and family legacies take the treasures from the past and gifts them to the future, giving to the future generations your words of wisdom, principles and puts into context what made you the way you are.
Silver Quill Legacies works with individuals to create a legacy document to provide an insight into not just your life, but your values, beliefs, and who you are as an individual. While you have time, awareness, and access to your mind and heart, Silver Quill Legacies can help you prepare a legacy letter telling significant people in your life of your love for them, what matters in your relationship with them, and what matters most to you in this world.
More in-depth than a Legacy Document, Silver Quill Legacies combines your Vital Statistics information with key life stories. These stories may be similar to Legacy Documents with an intention to pass on a life lesson or simply be recounting significant or pivotal life moments.
This document is an extended process involving personal reflection and introspection, recording significant dates, times and locations, plus follow-up interviews, writing and editing.
Different than a biography or legacy letter, a memoir is a bridge between the two - it's your story the way you choose to tell it. Covering a shorter span of your life than a biography, the memoir focuses on key events that impacted your life, shaped who you are, and serves to provide education and understanding to those who read it. A memoir generally avoids matters of vital statistics and family history information and focuses on your story or history from your point of view. Often a memoir is highly personal and for family and close friends.
