“Video books are a gift at many points in life, even the most heartbreaking times,” said Heirloom founder Ashley Kenny.

Among its many versatile uses, Heirloom is preserving the memory of those with life-threatening illnesses with its customized video playing books. The current climate has found many people turning to the innovative new product to leave behind a digital legacy, especially for those unable to say goodbye in person in the era of COVID-19.

“Video books are a gift at many points in life, even the most heartbreaking times,” said Heirloom founder Ashley Kenny.

In just seconds, users upload videos and messages to the Heirloom website to create a physical book with an integrated video player that automatically plays a 10-minute video when opened.

A recent testament to this brought to us by Debbie Milam. As she faces life-threatening infections that make it crucial for her to share her lasting wishes with those that mean the most to her - her husband, children, and grandchildren. As an author, she knows the power that books have and has relied on Heirloom as a way to deliver messages to her loved ones after she is gone.

“I’m a 57-year-old author who one year ago at the same time faced four life-threatening infections. Although the infections are gone, I am left with severe life-altering disabling post-COVID symptoms. I am currently on palliative care being reevaluated for hospice care,” said Milam.

“As I face my mortality, I wanted to leave a legacy of faith, love, memories, and prayer that would comfort my loved ones in their grieving process and would be a lasting reminder that our love is eternal. None of us know when we will draw our last breath, only God knows that. Yet creating an Heirloom book brought me such a sense of peace and also joy knowing my loved ones will have the perfect gift when I am no longer here.”

The family-owned business has proven to be a heartwarming tool to comfort families through the toughest of times. For more information and easy-to-use instructions for creating a book, visit sendheirloom.com.
