Clipper Media Memorial

a remembrance of your life, in your own words

All things must pass. It is a simple fact of life. 

But for far too long we have accepted that notion that, once that moment comes, we lose all control over how we shall be remembered. 

He drove a bus for 20 years.’She was a mother of three children.’ ‘He was a retired painter who liked eating marmalade and toast for dinner.’ 

Every life lived is a life worth remembering. And who better to do that than the person who lived this life worth living?

Clipper Media Memorial will help you -or your loved ones-  write a true and faithful testament to your life.

Once you sign up, we will send you a brief outline of things you might want to include in your Personal Memorial. 

For example:

  • Did you dream of becoming a politician or a rock star or a beatnik or a baseball player as a teenager?  
  • What are your favorite travel destinations?
  • What accomplishments are you most proud of?
  • What are some of your passions others might not know about?
  • Who were some of the people -strangers as well as friends and family- who most influenced your life?
  • How much of an effect did religion, or anything else, guide your life?

Once you start, it all becomes easier because you don’t have to worry about putting everything in order. We will do that for you. 

Once you have finished, simply email this outline to us and we will write your Farewell Memorial. When our edit is complete, we will then email you a copy and ask for any changes you might want to make.

And when all that is finished, when you have a Personal Memorial you can live with (pun) we will send you a ‘final’ pdf version and the original Word document which you can edit down the road or just keep on hand. 

Then all you have to do is put the ‘final’ pdf version in with your other personal papers with instructions that someone should read it ‘on your behalf’ at your Memorial. 

And you can print it off to be distributed or even have it published in your local newspaper!

Why not let James Porteous and Clipper Media Memorial help you to be remembered the way you want to be remembered. 

In your own way. In your own words.

Author James Porteous has been writing about other people’s lives for decades. His latest book, He Said, She Said is a collection of just some of the lives he has encountered.

‘He Said, She Said’ is an engaging, humorous Mark Twain-style collection of tales of faith, love, life, and sometimes, even redemption.

Here you will meet the burlesque dancer in New Orleans, the young woman in the American South fearful of religious commitment, and young adults looking for love in all the wrong places at a speed dating session at the local high school.

And many other souls, both lost and found.

James is also the author of two novels, The Fake Empire and The Last Record Album.
