“Don’t Be Lost To Time”
“One of the greatest gifts you can give to your children is yourself”
Well then after awhile I decided to make a DVD of the interview, it was fun, added some still photos that went along with his telling of his adventures and childhood. Burned a few DVD’s for the family, it was great.
Time passes and I went to view the DVD and it had scratches, no problem, burn another one, well which computer was that on, and all the files had to be found. Finally re-did the DVD...Good
A couple of moves later and “where was that DVD again” Finally found it again. But my gosh what next...
After my father passed away the family photo album was in the care of dubious individuals. A few years later just by accident it was found in the trash, (long story short) this was another great reason to do something different with all these great memories.
On a long trip with the family back to the state of Iowa, I rented a video camera and did an interview with my dad. It was great, I learned about his childhood, grandpa and grandma, his first car, military service and on and on. The camera battery went dead and I never got to finish that interview, but the 45 min I did get are priceless to me.
Photo albums are great to show friends and family but what about other’s who don’t live near you or how about trying to find that one funny picture in a shoe box same where in the garage. One scribbled line of text by each picture just doesn’t tell the story.
The future of the past is here, let the computer age preserve your memories for now and way into the future, for generations to come.
As Time Fades into the Future so does our memories and thoughts of those we loved,
We Say No More
