Life is all about sharing stories – and although it can take a little prompting at first, many people find they really enjoy sharing their memories with their loved ones. The Funeral and Memorial Information Council's Have the Talk of a Lifetime® program helps families form even closer bonds with the people who matter most to them by encouraging them to have meaningful conversations.
To help families get started, Have the Talk of a Lifetime® has developed a deck of 50 conversation starter cards with thought-provoking questions. Sitting down with loved ones to reflect on these prompts is a joyful experience that allows you to reflect on and share those cherished memories.
Watch the videos on this page to see the real impact of having the talk of a lifetime with your loved ones. To order cards for yourself or for your funeral home business, click the link below to visit the National Funeral Directors Association website.
