Our Inspiration

Remembering A Life coloring pages were created during the COVID-19 pandemic to provide people with a relaxing activity that requires no artistic skill, little instruction and few materials. The peaceful images on each of these pages invite reflection on a loved one who has died or simply provide a lovely escape during a time when many of us are sheltering in place. The designs are simple, beautiful, and shareable. Send your completed works of art to people you love!
