Here's a unique way to display a lifetime of photos? Ask family and friends to bring their favorite photo to the celebration of life or funeral and they could pin the photo onto the line. You would want to have labels so people could fill in their name, address and email address and place the label on the back of the photo. After the service, you then send back their photo along with a photo or an online album (scans) of all the photos that were shared. #funeralideas, #photoideas,
