Long Life Well Celebrated

Updated: Dec 16, 2023

It's very clear Louis Bermudes was loved and well cared for. Stories Well Told helped make this memorial more memorable.

Oak Hill Funeral Home in San Jose, CA is where the Oaks Chapel is located. The high turnout was to be expected as this long time friend was to enter his rest.

As the Digital Arranger, Stories Well Told took care of all the media needs. Coordinating with the family, funeral arranger & ministers, we helped plan where and how media would be used in the service. The chapel has 2 large screen TV's where we had placed a continual image to screen. At the proper moment, the screen would dissolve from static image to worship choruses. Following the many live tributes, the music video lifted spirits and brought comfort to the many family and friends that gathered.

Our live two camera video capture was also a comfort to the family as a HD archival recording with two cameras. Our goal was to record the both the chapel service and the graveside interment, which was performed with military honors.

The music vocal track was to play to at the precise moment, carefully mixed so both the vocalist could hear as well as the audience. Note the "hold slide" image remained on screen during the music of Connie & Greg Irby.

Louis enjoyed a lot of life. From his early days in the Army to many successful years in commercial and residential construction. He always loved to laugh and live every moment. Stories Well Told had the privilege of gathering special music to create a moving soundtrack to the many curated images. We hope you enjoy his legacy of life music video.

"Stories Well Told blessed our hearts and lives during a crushing impact in our lives but you brought out the beauty out of my Dad's life and brought some joy and comfort in what you created for us to treasure for a lifetime for our family. It will never be forgotten and the love and support to our family has left a lasting impression on our family."
