Memory Book

Welcome to ellenor’s Online Book.

For many years we have read your kind words, and listened to your stories. You’ve asked us for a special place to commemorate your loved ones, so we created this book especially for you. We wanted to give you a place to come and remember all those who are so dearly missed. A book to share your precious moments with friends and families. A means to celebrate the lives of those we love and cherish, always.

Most importantly, this book is your book, and we warmly invite you to add your story.
