My Journey Into the Future of Family Memory Keeping
Preserving memories is a vital mission. Once you understand FOREVER, it’s clear why the world needs it - but how do you spread the message? You can’t tell people what they need…but, sometimes, you can show them. And now, it’s easier than ever to pave the way. We wrote a book.
Entertaining, Inspiring, and Educational!
The Gift of FOREVER, written by Glen & Henry Meakem, is the story of an entrepreneur and his team as they build an important new company. It is also a bold vision for the future of family memory keeping and sharing that every parent and grandparent who loves family photos, videos, and documents – as well as every genealogist and family historian – must read.
From the book…
“The drive was as beautiful as the day. I was in no rush, so I stopped and saw gorgeous, tall California Red Wood trees and breathed the clear mountain air filled with the fragrances of both forest and sea. Then I drove along the Pacific Coast, stopping to walk along the beach. The whole time, I was thinking about my grandfather and all the family memories we possessed in our basement, on various computers and on our phones. I realized that all this material could be lost or deleted, and the memories lost to our family and to history.” …
“FOREVER Storage is unique because people who own it retain complete ownership of the content they store in the internet cloud at FOREVER.com. There is no data-mining or advertising, and we do not sell information about our clients to anyone. FOREVER guarantees that it will store and preserve the content saved by FOREVER Storage owners for their lifetimes, plus 100 years, with a goal of many, many generations beyond. … And FOREVER is complete – people sync their phones, convert old memories to digital, tag, share online, create, and print all from their FOREVER accounts.”
