Our Inspiration

Once Covid began isolating families, leaving some people unknowing if they'd get to see their family again. We wanted to help give an easier way for families to communicate and say everything they need for each other. Once we dug into it, we found research on the healing powers of these end-of-life letters. So many of the biggest end-of-life regrets revolve around not telling family members how much they mean to each other. It became clear that this is a practice that everybody should be aware of and try when the timing makes sense. Having a resource to make this easier is what we aim to do.
