The Jackson Monument Company, Inc., 14 Fairmont St., has teamed up with LifeMarker.com to give families a new, innovative way to remember and commemorate the lives of their loved ones who have passed away.
According to Jackson Monument Company, Inc., employee, Denise Arnold, LifeMarker allows families to load “videos, pictures, obituaries, life stories, etc.,” of their late family member or friend to www.lifemarker.com on the Internet.
Each family has a unique eight-digit code that can be entered on the website from anywhere in the world to gain access to the uploaded content. This way, friends and family anywhere can easily log on to the personalized web page.
In addition to the eight-digit code, families taking part in the program will also receive a chip containing a QR (quick response) code which will be displayed on their loved one’s headstone. The code can be scanned by a smart phone, or other Internet-accessible communication device, and will provide instant access to the personalized page.
Anyone with a compatible device who would like a QR reader should simply search their application store.
Arnold told The Telegram, there is a one-time fee of $150 for this service, and the chips containing the QR codes are guaranteed by LifeMarker. If the chip is ever lost or stolen, it will be replaced free-of-charge.
The Jackson Monument Company has had one customer take advantage of this opportunity so far, Arnold said. She added she is “excited about” the program, however, and expects more to take part as they learn about it.
