The Gold Watch

gw

When someone has dedicated years of their life to an organization, they become much more than an employee number or the balance of their contributions. They are a part of your company’s soul, its history, and its legacy.

At the end of a storied career, the traditional retirement is a small get-together and the gift of a gold watch. After everything they’ve given, don’t they deserve more?

Treasure the person behind the contributions by capturing their legacy. Learn the stories that made them who they are. Show them that the real value is the person behind the position.

The truest stories of a company are the stories of the people who make it great.

Capturing Legacies Inc. Everybody has a story.

The Start of the Ed Whalen Story

Capturing Legacies is thrilled to have been selected to chronicle the life of the legendary Ed Whalen.  The press release is here.

This Sunday, we made the trip out to Canmore to conduct our first interview with Nomi Whalen, his wife of 34 years. She shared some fantastic stories with us and gave us a rare glimpse of the real man behind the voice.

Nomi is a collector of collections, not the least of which is Ed’s numerous awards and memorabilia. But her prized possession is a ring secretly commissioned for her by Ed in 2001. While he never had the chance to see it finished, the jeweler made sure that Ed’s final gift made it to Nomi’s finger, where it has remained ever since.
