"Have the Talk of a Lifetime Month offers families even more ways to help them have conversations about the things that matter most and how they hope to be remembered." said FAMIC president
Berry notes that while FAMIC is so pleased to provide so many ways for families to begin to talk, there is no "right" way to Have the Talk of a Lifetime. "Simply begin to tell your stories. The talks can be informal, and can take place over time in any situation – a cup of coffee, dinner, a trip to the grocery store. Make use of photos or family memorabilia, recipes and keepsakes as conversation starters. Make November your Time for Family, Time for Talk."
Families are encouraged to share photos and memories throughout the month of November on social media using the hashtags #TalkOfALifetime #HaveTheTalk #TimeForFamily #TimeForTalk #WeTalked.
The Have the Talk of a Lifetime® campaign was developed to help educate the public about the importance of talking with their loved ones to ensure that memorialization is a fulfilling and rewarding experience when the time comes.
