Before it’s too late
Each of us has been given a life, which we share with those we love. No matter how hard we try, our time is limited. A recorded LifeStory captures the essence of a life well lived for years to come.
What if we don’t
The passing of a loved one is heart-wrenching for many reasons. What happens to our parents’ and grandparents’ stories? Will those stories fade until we no longer remember them?
The Untold Story
Some LifeStories have never been shared before. Not intentionally to keep secrets from loved ones. We often just don’t think to ask questions that invite those stories. LifeStories Alive uncovers those stories that have never been shared before.
From those who have recorded LifeStories…
“Mike O’Krent is a uniquely gifted documentarian. But moreover he is an exemplary human being who connects with people on a deep level, and brings out of them the essence of who they are.”
“My husband… was a remarkable man, and I feel the process of the life review you afforded us gave him an opportunity to see his life in its entirety, not just the final years of dealing with cancer. The best thing for us as his family is the treasure of his life to see on our DVD… was also invaluable.”
“[Mike’s] process of sitting down with the person and getting to know him or her before starting the recording put everyone at ease. I know Dad had a good time being the center of attention, too! ”
“Little did we realize that my husband would be diagnosed with a terminal illness just a few months after you completed our [LifeStory] video for us. Having your video helps me to remember his generous spirit, love for his family, his limitless humor, and high intelligence. He was one of a kind, for sure.”
“My father-in-law was diagnosed with the cancer that would later take his life. The LifeStory captured events and family history that would have been lost with his passing. The DVD was played at his funeral; it was the most rewarding and meaningful funeral reception I have ever attended. All the attendees were rewarded with a last look at his wonderful sense of humor, his love for his family and the history of his community.”
