About Us

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 the idea 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.

About 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 Memorial Bookmarks.

We appreciate the opportunity to help you honor your loved ones and celebrate all life’s wonderful events. Thank you for visiting our website.

  • I received the bookmarks in the mail. I am very happy with them. I really appreciate your help in being able to word it in my own way. The funeral director we had totally rushed us and I hated the way he wrote it. All of us are very pleased with the ones from you.

  • 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.
