5 New FOREVER Enhancements

By Michaela Elliott

We had a fantastic time at FOREVER Live! 2019. One of the best parts of the event was gathering feedback from our community about the FOREVER platform. Now, one month later, five of the most requested enhancements from Live! are in place!

Remembering my Grandfather: Tagging Memories

By Abby Schreiber

It’s not how I wanted to remember him - I remembered him as a listener, a laugher. But something compelled me to keep taking the photos. “This could be the last time, remember it,” the voice in my head would nudge. As time went on, though, my grandpa kept surviving. He’s break a hip, and we’d think, “This is it.” It, however, kept prolonging. And the photos kept adding up.

Trust the Company, Not the Proximity, for your Media Conversion

By Michaela Elliott

Family photos and videos are priceless - handing them over to a stranger to be digitized is scary. To many, even scarier is the idea of putting those precious items in the mail and shipping them to a distant location to be converted.

But the expertise and reputation of the service doing the converting is much more important than its proximity. Denise Cummings, a FOREVER customer, can attest to that.

What Took Me So Long?!

By Sylvia Bland

What took me so long to start getting my precious memories converted, I will never know, but I am thankful for FOREVER. I can hardly wait for all of my precious memories to be converted and safely preserved in my FOREVER Account!

How Angel Gowns Brought Families Together

By Phyllis Offenkrantz & Jean Martelli

Jean said that her neighbor, Diane (who is also her FOREVER customer!), had made Jean’s wedding dress into “Angel Gowns” and donated them to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. Diane sews Angel Gowns (clothing in which lost newborns can be buried) from donated wedding gowns, and the Angel Gowns are then given to the families for the burial of their precious children.

Goodwill Reminds Us of the Importance of Preserving Memories

By Michaela Elliott

Last month, a story piqued the interest of people across the country. Kristie Baeumert, a resident of Georgia, found a wealth of slides from the mid-20th century in an old projector that she had bought at a local thrift store. The photos featured a beautiful, elegant family, the names or information of whom was completely missing (CNN).

My Secret to Living in the Moment

By Tameka Bond

Recently, FOREVER launched Collaborative Albums. It’s a game-changer! They enabled me to create one album that all 32 attendees of our event could upload to. All anyone needed was a FOREVER Account. Our group was able to share over 500 photos with each other. Now, we have a lasting, cohesive memory of our trip!

Celebrating My Husband's Life

By Barrie Perrottino

My husband recently passed away and I needed pictures for the memory book I was creating for his Celebration of Life.  I wanted pictures of him alone as well as with each member of the family, but many of the photos I wanted needed to be digitized. With FOREVER Media Conversion Services, I was able to use all the pictures I wanted for the book and it turned out amazing!  I received many compliments on it, and the digitally converted pictures were of great quality. 

FOREVER Puts Privacy First and Makes Video a Priority

By Michaela Elliott

As security increasingly falls under the spotlight, it's inevitable that consumers will move toward technology companies that prioritize privacy over making a quick buck by selling user data to advertisers. FOREVER already does - and, with video capability right around the corner, there's nothing holding you back from preserving all your memories with FOREVER.

Recovering a Lifetime of Memories from the Ashes

By JoAnne Evenden

This story just goes to show how important pictures taken over our lifetime can be. Photos are so valuable! Thank you for the part that FOREVER played over the years in helping me help my cousin reclaim her photo legacy from the devastating 2017 wildfires in California.
