Our slogan, “Tell Their Story“, was created to invite people to tell the story of someone they love. As we have worked with families over the years, in times of loss, we have learned that each bench is a fantastic story of a very special person who touched the lives of others. When we tell a story of our loved ones, we preserve those special memories.
The stories told here are genuine stories of genuine heroes in our lives.
We pay tribute to these loved ones by telling their story.
Please enjoy our Hero Board of stories.
To Tell Their Story, simply scroll to the bottom of the page and submit the story.
Thank You for Telling Their Story!
Tell us the story of your loved one, post it on our
“Tell Their Story “Hero Board.
