Quote: When You Remember Me – How Do You Want to Be Remembered?

“When you remember me, it means you have carried something of who I am with you, that I have left some mark of who I am on who you are.

It means you can summon me back to your mind even though countless years and miles stand between us.” — Frederick Buechner




How do you want others, your family to remember YOU?

Your life, and memories are precious! Leave a legacy of love for your family, suggestions of ways to prerserve your memory:

*Create a scrapbook with photographs, momentos, written comments, newspaper articles, recipes and other special items. Invite family members to add to the scrapbook.

*Create a journal of important or memorable events in your life. OR purchase a journal that includes writing prompts– some journals include questions or prompts to write about, that can be helpful. A journal can be composed of written entries or may be a visual journal with photographs or clip art. Other journals include prompts to draw pictures rather than write with words.

*Create an online blog, pinterest page, or use other social media to connect with family members and preserve precious memories.

*Create a playlist of music that can be shared with songs or messages that are important or meaningful to you.

*Reach out to family members to share, talk, play games…maintain relationships with family.

*Create a profile on a genealogy website to record family history, create a family tree, add pictures or significant events.
