"I also wanted to share a couple of photographs with you, she says. During your third episode, you talked about creative ways to display your family history treasures, and I wanted to share with you something absolutely wonderful my aunt did for me.
When my grandmother had to downsize and move into an assisted living facility, my aunt stumbled upon a beautiful silk baby dress and a pair of leather button-up baby shoes that had belonged to my grandmother. She had these framed for me along with a photograph of my grandmother on her 1st birthday wearing them! She gave the finished product to me because she knew how much I am fascinated by our family's history. Sincerely, Diana

"On this weeks episode #21 you were talking about writing your memories. I received a book from my daughter last Christmas that does just what you are talking about. It is "A Mother's LegacyYour life story in your own words. I think it is terrific because there was no way I was going to write anything anytime. This book is a month by month calendar book. Each month has questions to write about"
