The Remember Me book is a beautiful addition to any coffee table.


The book was designed to help you remember to pray for your deceased loved ones. Inside you’ll find useful narrative ranging from specific prayers to ideas about how to get the most out of your book. There is a two-page spread for each month of the year with a handy pocket to help you organize obituaries, holy cards and memorials. It is our hope that it will become a focal point of prayer for you and your family each and every month. As you open the month and recall the loved ones who have gone before you, you will find yourselves filled with many memories. Finally, you’ll be able to keep a comprehensive record of death and have a place to share important memories to pass on to future generations.

May the souls of the faithful departed through the Mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.

To our family and friends who have gone before us; may we always remember them.

“this book beautifully awakens us to the forgotten truth that our God is a God of the living, not the dead.”

This book beautifully awakens us to the forgotten truth that our God is a God of the living, not the dead. We are called to remember, pray for, and ask for the prayers of those who have gone before us in Christ. The Church militant and the Church triumphant in union as the communion of saints witnessing to the Paschal Mystery of the passion, death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ and His victory over death. I can think of no better way for a family to teach and remember this truth than through this book.

Father James Mason

Saint Pio of Pietrelcina (1887-1968), known to the world as “Padre Pio,” said it best about the souls in Purgatory: “The Holy Souls are eager for the prayers of the Faithful which can gain indulgences for them. Their intercession is powerful. Pray unceasingly. We must empty Purgatory!” Laura Woods’ Remember Me reminds us of our obligation to pray and do penance for the Holy Souls, and to have the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass offered frequently for them. How could we forget our beloved dead?

“This is the kind of book you can pass on to your children and their childrens’ children. It’s like the inside cover of an old family Bible where lives were recorded, but even more remarkable!”

Jerry Usher / Former Host of EWTN’s Catholic Answers

This book is a unique, marvelous and spiritual addition to the Christian family home. As we gather as a family for our nightly prayers, we are able to add prayers for the holy souls of our loved ones, and look through the tangible memories neatly organized in the sturdy monthly pockets. Long after my husband and I are gone, our children will be able to remember the dear holy souls who have passed, and will be able to offer the gift of continued prayer.

Ana Braga-Henebry, M.A. / Educator, Writer and Mother

It is our hope that you will give thanks to God for the gift of your life as well as theirs.

A place to share important memories for future generations.

Creating the book. Our story.

The inspiration for Remember Me came fifteen years ago. When author Laura Woods returned home from a funeral, she placed the deceased man’s obituary in a basket next to her couch to help her remember to pray for him. Soon, there were several obituaries and memorials filling the basket, prompting her husband Jim to suggest that she create something that was a little more organized.

Not having the time to take Jim’s advice, a few years had passed when Laura began waking up at the same time in the middle of the night feeling saddened with the words “Remember Me” going through her head. She would then recall the names of deceased family and friends who she had promised to pray for but had forgotten.

Filled with sadness from forgetting to honor the faithful departed as promised, Laura decided to pursue Jim’s idea of creating a book to help not only her, but Christian families everywhere, to organize the remembrances of loved ones with monthly calendars.

That’s the story of Remember Me. Born from God’s will and guidance; it is now available for you to start your own tradition of memories.

“I hope you find as much comfort in using this book as I did in creating it. May the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God, rest in peace.”
