Keep all those stories about mom and dad preserved. You know, the ones you share at holiday dinners, around the campfire or, those rare moments when you're all together. The ones that have you rolling. Keep the stories you grew up with and enjoy hearing over and over.
My dad was a great story teller. I loved hearing about his childhood and his career as an engineer. He'd tell me stories about his dad and their family and just so many interesting things. I've written down some of these stories but I just can't retell them to my kids as well as he could. And honestly, I've even forgotten many of them.
I can see in my kids eyes they wish they knew more about their grandpa. He knew them but because he died when they were little, they have very few memories of him. That connection is lost.
Like you, I had every intention of sitting down with dad to record his story. But like many of us, I myself was too busy with life. Sadly, all I have are a few seconds of him on video.
HOW WILL THEY BE REMEMBERED?
