Many Boomers are at a stage where family memories have great meaning.
They also are into scrapbooking and journaling. They often are caregivers for parents or relatives and find themselves saving those persons’ memories for children, grandchildren and future generations.
They realize, as Mma Ramotswe did, in the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, about her father: His life was unrecorded; who is there to write down the lives of ordinary people?
There are members of my family, who have died without children or spouse or anyone to record their lives. If I don’t do it, who will? Will they be simply a statistic in future years when I’m not here to share memories about them?
This may occur to other Boomers, who want to preserve family members. They may desire to preserve memories. You can help them!
