About Us

About Celebrating Life Bookmarks. . .

Since 1998, HD Merrimack has been the leading outsource provider of Memorial and Celebration Bookmarks to newspapers across the United States.

It all started when the creator of Commemorative Bookmarks, Harlyene Goss, saw a laminated obituary from the company, Permanent Record, in Tennessee. They were the originators of laminated obituary bookmarks in 1956. Harlyene was intrigued by the idea and felt with the use of computers; she could offer a much broader selection making each Memorial Bookmark unique to the individual person and family.

Having no money to advertise the Commemorative Bookmarks, Harlyene went to newspapers to see if they would add the bookmarks as a service to the obituaries.  In time, the newspapers asked her to develop a line of Celebration Bookmarks.  The combination of these is what you see in the Celebrating Life Bookmarks.

During this time, Harlyene was also going through a major loss in her life and was looking for any type of coping skills and healing tools. This propelled her into the area of energy healing. Finding a great deal of benefit in doing this energy work, she decided that it needed to be incorporated into the bookmarks.

Every bookmark has an intended energy, whether it be of healing and solace for families or the remembrance of joy. We put a part of our heart into every bookmark we make.

“When my sister asked me to work with her in creating our Dad’s bookmark, I resisted. I thought it would hurt too much. I found it to be the opposite. As we went through the selections, we remembered some wonderful family stories that had been forgotten. We laughed and we cried as we created a bookmark that fits our Dad.”
