My mother (at
age three in the far right photo) had few stories to pass on,
mainly because she never had the time to reflect on her life.
She was too busy being both mother and father to three
When she died, I looked in vain for something she had
written down of her thoughts and feelings about her life. All I
found were some scribbled notes about a patient she had cared
for as a nurse. How wonderful it would have been to discover
that she had some of her stories written or recorded about her
life so her children would never forget those details or the
sound of her voice. Will this happen to your children?
Even though I had been capturing stories in my business life for
over 25 years as a photographer at that moment I realized the
power of story. It was only
then, when they were my family stories that were missing, did I
realize the importance of doing this work.
I have dedicated the
rest of my life to capturing and preserving our stories, because
I feel it's important to honor, celebrate and share them with
our families and loved ones.
Please join me in this effort to
celebrate life, and please make the commitment to spend some
time for the future benefit of those you love. It's your
priceless, unique legacy!
