Siblings find niche in preserving memories By Kurt Backscheider
Katy Samuels said people constantly tell her and her brother, Scott Berding, they made a great move by starting their business. The West Side brother and sister team founded Memories of Loved Ones, a small business specializing
in creating commemorative collages and displays for funerals, weddings, anniversaries, graduations and other milestone celebrations. “We feel we offer a very unique service,” said Samuels, who grew up in Delhi Township and now lives in Green Township. The idea for their busi-
ness was inspired by a friend of theirs who they miss very much, she said. Samuels and Berding worked together in the information technology field for many years, and in July 2004 their friend and colleague, Keith Noble, died suddenly while on vacation with his family. Samuels said she and her brother de-

cided the best way to honor their friend was to organize a memorial golf outing and raise money for charity. She said they borrowed the poster boards used at Noble’s funeral that featured photographs chronicling his life and displayed them near the registration table at the inaugural outing. The display was very popular at the outing, and she said everyone enjoyed looking at all the photos of him. They brought the poster boards back for the second and third annual outings, and they were the most popular feature at the outings each year, she said. Prior to the fourth annual outing, Samuels said they contacted Noble’s wife to get the poster boards, but they were misplaced when she moved to a new home. So, Samuels contacted Noble’s sister and borrowed as many photos of him as she could to create digital scrapbook
pages to display at the outing. For the next few months, she said people were telling them left and right how beautiful the display was. “The feedback we received was so great,” Samuels said. “We began wondering if there was anyone who was offering this type of service to grieving families.” She said when they couldn’t find any, Memories of Loved Ones was born. They started the family business in 2010, and have continually worked to improve their process and expand their services. Samuels said they meet face-to-face with every family who requires their services, design personal and memorable collages and displays and have them professionally framed so they can be cherished for years to come. Utilizing an RV
equipped with computers and scanning equipment, she said they can drive to a customer’s home and convert their favorite photographs to digital images in a matter of hours, ensuring the photos are not lost or damaged. In addition to funerals, she said they’ve designed displays for graduations, weddings, anniversaries, family reunions and corporate events. They can also create photo books and DVD slide shows. As a way to give back to the community, the business offers a Heroes Package in which they’ll design, free of charge, displays for any police officer, firefighter and military member killed in the line of duty. They also work closely with the Yellow Ribbon Support Foundation and the Let Us Never Forget Scholarship Fund. For more information, visit www.themolo.com or call 661-6656.
