Quote: When You Remember Me
“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
FAMILY GENEALOGY ACTIVITY:
How do you want others, your family to remember YOU?
Your life, and memories are precious! Leave a legacy of love for your family with one of the following ways to prerserve your memory:
*Create a scrapbook with photographs, momentos, written comments, newspaper articles, recipes and other special items. Invite your family members to add to the scrapbook.
*Create a journal of important or memorable events in your life. OR purchase a journal– 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.

*Create a CD of music–especially music that was important or meaningful to you
