The Funeral and Memorial Information Council encourage families to Have the Talk of a Lifetime – to engage in meaningful conversations reflecting on the past and planning for the future.
Holidays are the perfect time to celebrate and Have the Talk of a Lifetime with your loved ones. As families and friends gather in November, take the time to create a special family event and begin a new tradition, one that matters most.
For various cultures, this time of year includes many opportunities to remember, honor, reminisce, share and express gratitude – beginning the end of October with Hallows’ Eve, Halloween, All Saints’ Day, All Souls’ Day and Dia de los Muertos, throughout the month of November with Veterans Day, World Kindness Day, Thanksgiving, National Day of Listening and National Day of Giving.
Need help getting started? It’s easy. Choose one of the days below, gather your family and friends, print the
holiday guide or the activity guide and begin sharing those meaningful stories. Be creative, have fun and make it memorable! If you are interested in purchasing the Have the Talk of a Lifetime deck of cards, please contact us using the email from below. Stories heal and memories last a life time!!
