How to Use Remembering My Father

Remembering My Father is designed to assist with the process of grieving your father. Whether it is used today or after some time has passed, it will help you recall details of your father’s life, record unforgettable memories, and provide a place for your spirit to gently release the pain that comes with the passing of a loved one.

We suggest the following ways to work through your grief:

Alone: Gather loving thoughts, memories, and expressions of grief, either your own or from others, so that you recall details about your father and your relationship with him.

With family: Family members can record their memories in their own journals, and share them with each other. Discussing these life moments together can unite and strengthen family bonds.

What will help you the most during this time: This journal will allow you to focus your thoughts when it can be difficult to focus at all. It will provide you with a sense of personal closure and a place to record things you may learn about your father that you did not know before now, along with thoughts you want to remember for safekeeping.

Remembering My Father can provide storage for the obituary notice, the funeral program, death certificate, and birth certificate, plus some of the special condolence cards, Mass cards, flower cards, and pictures. It can also provide some document storage (for example, any diplomas or special honors received), so that you may keep these things in one place for quick reference.
