Remembering Mom & Dad

Another way to keep on track was to compile a memory book for our family.  The idea was to capture pictures and stories in one place so the younger generation would be able to know their grandparents and great-grandparents better.  I gathered up things that we’d said or written about mom and dad along with family pictures and created a book on Blurb.com.  It turned out well and provided me with a much needed channel for my grief processing.  Somehow, turning my sadness into something tangible that we could hold and share helped.  You can see the result here
