Atlanta, GA, January 10, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Flipuary.com is a new service that helps you celebrate your loved one’s legacy and keep their memory alive.
Most of us started 2017 with the excitement and resolve to make it our best year yet. But with all the celebrities we’ve lost in 2016, it’s more important than ever to think of ways we can honor the loved ones in our life.
The celebrities we lost in 2016 varied in age, and we certainly did not foresee that we’d have to say goodbye to them so soon. Each touched our lives and impacted us in different ways. Some of our beloved celebrities we’ve said good-bye to in 2016 include:
• Prince, iconic, all-around musical genius and legend, age 57
• Gwen Ifill, “PBS NewsHour” anchor and debate moderator, age 61
• Gene Wilder, known for excellent movies such as, “Willy Wonka”, age 83
• Florence Henderson, beloved “Brady Bunch” mom, age 82
• Garry Marshall, director and creator of classic sitcoms, age 81
• David Bowie, musical genius, age 69
• Muhammad Ali, boxing legend, champion, and outspoken activist, age 74
• Pat Summitt, record-setting coach of Lady Vols basketball team, age 64
• Alan Thicke, iconic TV dad on “Growing Pains”, age 69
• Craig Sager, fun, talented, and colorfully dressed NBA reporter, age 65
• George Michael, former Wham! singer known for hits like “Faith”, age 53
• Ricky Harris, talented comedian and actor, age 54
• Carrie Fisher, actress who played “Princess Leia” in "Star Wars," age 60
• Debbie Reynolds, "Singin' in the Rain" actress, mother of Carrie Fisher, age 84
• William Christopher, played “Father Mulcahy” on "M*A*S*H," age 84
The celebrities we’ve lost in 2016 remind us that the most important thing you can do when mourning the passing of a loved one is to celebrate their life. For example, we listened to our favorite Prince, George Michael, and David Bowie songs to help us celebrate their lives and remember how they touched ours.
Likewise, when we must say goodbye to a beloved family member or close friend, we should do our best to honor the life they lived as well.
“No one likes planning the funeral of a loved one. But if that time comes, we should aim to focus on the life they lived, and really do our best to honor their legacy. Not only highlighting their accomplishments, but focusing even more on the person they were! Capturing their personality is key – because when we remember their lives, we want to remember them how they lived, not how they died,” says Flipuary.com founder, Renee Barnes.
The most important thing someone tasked with preparing a funeral program can do, is capture the essence of their life. Yet, it’s important to still include the necessary information about their funeral or memorial ceremony.
A Flipuary allows you to do just that, because it contains the details of the loved one’s life as well as funeral information. But it doesn’t end there. It includes precious words, pictures, audio and videos from the life they lived. The Flipuary allows you to remember your loved one’s life and reflect on key moments – anytime, anywhere – and allows you to share it with friends and family via text, social media sites or email. A Flipuary is truly the best way to keep the memory of your loved one alive for years to come.
