It’s always a flashback to see a telling photograph or stumble across an old family film or tape – the gaps in even the most precious of our memories fill in quickly. The sensation is like snapping a hazy view suddenly into sharp focus: “That’s right, I forgot all about that!”

Whether it brings joy or longing, it surely brings understanding and perspective about your family members or relationships. And those keepsakes are there not only for you but for generations that follow. Or are they?

 

 
You can be sure that you and yours will be left with more than those cloudy recollections and second-hand stories. Make digital copies of photos, tapes and film that are deteriorating, scattered or at risk of being lost in storage. Renew the sensations that created feelings you carried through the years!
 
Use your digital keepsakes in creating multimedia virtual Remembrances, Legacies, Private Thoughts, Forget-Me-Nots and Pet Garden memorials, which you do on the Ways to Remember sections of GriefSupportServices.org, or to share in any way. We would like to help you, and we can do it at a most reasonable cost.

National Grief Support Services looked far and wide to find a trusted source. We realize if a company lost or damaged your photographic memories, that it would be devastating. We were not comfortable trusting such a responsibility to many of the home based services or individuals who may be here today and gone tomorrow. Video-Sync was our choice, not only for the quality and reliability of their work, and their caring professional staff, but for their track record. Video-Sync is a brick and mortar establishment that has been in business since 1991 and in all that time they have never lost or damaged anyone’s precious memories. We invite you to search the web, and we are confident that you will not find anyone who can provide this kind of quality, reliability and pricing. We cannot thank them enough for the special consideration that they are extending for our grief site visitors.


         

Video-Sync Entertainment, a member of our Compassion Cooperative, is offering generous rates through GriefSupportServices.org to preserve your earliest and dearest photographic and audiovisual treasures. These special rates allow you to keep priceless audio, video, home-movie film and photographs on CD or DVD files you can pass around and preserve, as well as having them digitized for virtual memories or legacies you may wish to create. Not only that, but a portion of your investment in lasting memories also benefits the nonprofit work of National Grief Support Services Inc., including this website.
