There are many reasons a Legacy video will benefit you and your family. Unfortunately, sometimes, people are diagnosed with a terminal illness or chronic medical condition. And in many cases, it is a reality that most people want just a few things at the end of their life.
- They want to be remembered
- They want to pass down life experiences and give valuable advice
- And finally, they want to know that their life mattered
My grandfather passed away many years ago. And as much as I hate to admit, I did not think about a legacy video as a concept. But now, it feels like I had a chance to preserve memories of him for everyone in my family. Many years later, I wish I can look at him and hear him sharing his life stories. There are so many! World war two, the struggles and pain followed by a love story when he met with my grandma. How my mom was such a tomboy and how he felt when I was born. Those memories are vivid in my mind, but sooner or later, it will fade away. So yes, here is my example on why make a Legacy video.
I wish our family had that video to share at the family gathering. I wish when he passed away, I could make copies for everyone close to him so that they can cherish his memory for years to come. He was loved!
On the other hand, it does not always have to be sad. Memory Videos can be fun and cheerful! An Anniversary video of your parents, or a time capsule video with your kids sending a message to the future selves. So it is up to you to decide which one will be!
