Lake Ridge Chapel shares how The Living Family Journal can make a difference
“Thank you for giving me some peace of mind.”
“I appreciate how easy it is to use.”
“Your software helped me find life insurance policies that I did not know my husband had. I can’t thank you enough!”
These are just a few of the comments families are making about The Living Family Journal software.
Lake Ridge Chapel & Memorial Designers has worked with LifeSteps software developers to bring The Living Family Journal to our community. This software helps families organize, update and record all their important information from the convenience of their personal computer.
If you have ever lost a loved one, you know from personal experience how heartbreaking it can be to search high and low for information needed by insurance companies, funeral homes, financial institutions, and creditors. A grieving family is often burdened with the task of searching through hall closets, desk drawers and old file cabinets for the proverbial needle in a haystack.
That is how the idea for The Living Family Journal actually came about.
After the loss of her husband, a widow pulled a family safe from her bedroom closet and located a three-ring binder that her husband had prepared in case of an emergency. That binder contained all the information she would need to settle his affairs. At every meeting that followed with funeral directors, social security officers, lawyers, insurance companies, and financial institutions, she would pull out the binder and present the information needed.
That woman happened to be the mother-in-law of LifeSteps founder, Tim Tivis.
“The only time I saw my mother-in-law take a sigh of relief was when she pulled out that binder,” said Tim, owner and creator of the Living Family Journal.
“We could only imagine what it would have been like for her without this binder. This priceless, thoughtful gift was the catalyst for the creation of The Living Family Journal software. I believe every family should have the opportunity to experience this peace of mind,” Tim shared.
The software goes well beyond just the information needed at death; it provides easy access to emergency contacts, medical, financial, insurance and real estate holdings, just to name a few. It also includes an exclusive funeral planning section that was developed so that funeral homes like Lake Ridge would be able to offer it to the families they serve.
