Collection of Our Favorite Family Memories
This Collection of Favorite Memories has given us time to remember and reflect on our parents; and to think deeply on the changes that death has brought. We have hope for the future as our parents and siblings live on in our hearts and in our combined memories. We have a treasure of our favorite memories that come alive each time we open the collection and read a few of them. We seven of eight girls are the only children left of our parents. As we talk to each other we laugh and smile while recalling both sweet and bitter memories of our family. We realized that we needed each other's help to reconstruct and validate the events people and places as we wrote about memories from years ago. Sometimes we corroborated each other's memories; other times we corrected the memories of each other and in the process we have created a more accurate treasury of family memories. I am greatly indebted to Bettye Gloria Sybil Mary Martha and Charlotte. Without their contributions the book would not have materialized.
