My Wonderful Life

Jar Full of Memories

posted on 10/3/11 by MyWonderfulLife.com Staff

Green initiatives have made some think twice about what they put into the ground, so we found some interesting ways people can honor their loved ones by starting a memorial box to keep in their home. This way, precious keepsakes that people might normally want to be buried with, can be kept and treasured every day. Here are some different types of memory jars we came across that would be a beautiful addition to any home.

 

 

Memory Tree

Write fond memories or send warm wishes with this memory tree. Just attach each note to individual branches and protect them with a glass dome.

 

Noteful Reminders

Use colorful scraps of paper and have your family members write a small note to the deceased. Keep them in a mason jar to display. This is a simple and easy way to reminisce about a loved one who has passed away.

 

Memory Capsule

Whether you want to highlight an important event in your loved ones life, or whether you just want a place for treasured keepsakes, take the time to put a meaningful jar together. Get the whole family involved, or even make several jars so that all members of the family can have one to keep. You could even pass them around and take turns!

 

How do you remember your loved one?

Well, these memory jars can break, get lost or stolen, and to some people are rather tasteless.
Why not store the memories of a loved one, or your own memories you want loved ones to revisit, in a digital 'jar'? Which is what the Lifebox is, within the My Last Song website. It's secure and can be accessed for as long as you like by future generations. Give it a try...it's very appealing.

Paul Hensby, I am absolutely disgusted that you would spam a site like this to promote your own product.

How dare you call grieving relatives writing notes to a lost loved one "tasteless"? What's tasteless is this thoughtless attempt at self promotion! Working in a business such as yours requires sensitivity you are clearly lacking, and an understanding that memorials are deeply personal to the deceased and their loved ones, not other people's judgemental ideas of good taste!

I would previously have considered purchasing your product but now cannot in good conscience do so. Consider that promoting your own idea by attacking others could be counter-productive.
