STORY OF A LIFETIME ~ VIDEO BIOGRAPHIES provide the opportunity to know, hear and witness the stories of our loved ones ~ and can be a powerful experience for everyone. A video biography is a way for children, grandchildren and future generations to understand who we are and what experiences shaped our lives.
