Remembering Your Loved Ones
Combining calligraphy with photography is a moving way to remember someone who has passed. It can make you feel consoled to see their picture and read the memorial someone has written about them. A professional memorial written in calligraphy is a way that businesses can also honor past employees.
There are many beautiful poems that speak of death in a way that is comforting for those left behind. “Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep” is one of my frequently requested poems.
One of the saddest requests I have is for a memorial for a new baby. It’s hard to even to do the calligraphy while I’m tearing up… This poem about a short life was a beautiful way to look at losing a new baby….. heartbreaking.
“Sail into the Sun” (see below) is a story that has moved many people by saying as the person you loved one disappears from your sight, beyond our vision they appear to others. It was a story I wrote out in calligraphy for a friend whose child had died from cancer, and it gave her great comfort to read it. She shared the story with her support group of parents. Very sad….. It’s so hard to know what to say, and rather than speaking, calligraphy can provide the words that may give some solace to those suffering from losing a loved one.
Calligraphy is most often is happy work, commemorating special occasions. But Beautiful Calligraphy services also include writing memorials for those who have passed on. It’s a meaningful way to show how much that person meant to you by writing a memorial for them. Calligraphy memorials are the perfect way to show you care.
