Digital Headstones

A Digital Memorial Of Your Loved One By Using QR Codes

When your loved one passes away, you want a headstone to be a permanent reminder of them and who they are. Due to modern technology, pictures are now being used and even recorded music and lighting is being seen everywhere. There is bylaws to consider along with rules in each cemetery also. But, a new modern digital miracle has happened in headstone technology. It is called QR codes. For more information or ordering a headstone, contact American Headstones at (949) 235-3881.

Online, we now have all our social media sites. We can talk to our friends and family everyday. We can make new friends along the way and discover lost friendships. Pictures and videos are shared about life that we all are missing as we do not live close by. This makes us feel right there when anything major is happening. For example a birth of a baby, a wedding, a birthday celebration, and even holiday events.

When someone passes away, a tribute page is usually now made for this person’s life to honor them and of course not to be forgotten. This is the same exact thinking about QR codes, which are actually bar codes. Instead of coldness through a bar code and you are just another number, instead a beautiful idea occurred when someone’s loved passed away.

In Orem, Utah, a company was born off of an idea and wishes of a family member, to keep their memories alive forever. Their stories of triumph and tragedy. With pictures and only so much info being placed on gravestone markers, now a person can be linked to a website. Their place in time.

For only fifty dollars, the little metal plate can be placed on the headstone. When it is scanned, you will immediately go to a website about that person. You will hear them talking, see them with family and friends and comments from friends and family members sharing their life story. It is an awesome personal touch to something so special and sacred.

Just use your smart phone and take a walk through the cemetery while listening to your loved one. There is of course a web address that will also be provided. This is why this QR code concept is going to be used in the future to preserve genealogy for many generations to come can learn about their family history.

This idea is taking off fast. With one idea is to use for our vets as a loving tribute for their sacrifice and hearing their comrades talk about them and the bonds that were made. From spouses to parents to fiancees who never heard their story while they were gone. It will add more meaning to their life away from home. The babies and children will grow up hearing and seeing this living story about their lost parent. Fiancees who lost their love of their live will meet his or her buddies and could possibly become life long friends.

No matter what the stories are, these loved ones have made a mark with history, local society, or within the families themselves. Everyone has a story to tell. Some have never been told to this day and have been lost forever. These treasures of time and history will be saved for many centuries to come.
