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…

Pamela B. 

“[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! ”

 

 

Bill M.

“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.”

 

 

Marian H.

“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.”

 

 

Michelle N.

“We commissioned the LifeStory as a gift for my parents in honor of their 45th wedding anniversary. However, as it turns out, the gift is all ours.”

Farya P.

“Mike O’Krent and his team at LifeStories Alive interviewed and produced a video capturing my mother’s life stories. As a native of Iran, she escaped her homeland alone with two small children shortly after the Ayatollah Khomeini gained power and the U.S. hostages were captured. The trauma of literally having to leave overnight…leaving behind her home and many other family members was a subject that she rarely talked about.

Mike was organized and detail-oriented throughout the pre-interview process and knew how to break down a sometimes overwhelming experience into small manageable and distinct parts. Mike’s professionalism, process and interviewing techniques helped my mother to feel safe and comfortable before, during and after the interview.”
