Preserving Family History
Lawman received a package in the mail about 2 weeks ago from his dad. It was his dad's book.
Dad decided several years ago that he was going to write his life story. And true to his word, he did. First was volume I; last week's package contained volume II.
What a treasure this is for us and our daughters. His story to date (or relatively close to it) is down on paper, in black & white. Photos included.
So many times stories are lost as the older generation passes on. What a great way to preserve the family history. I know in years to come this will be a treasure trove of information for our daughters.
I've enjoyed reading it and I've learned a thing or two about my father-in-law. I am so thankful that Dad took the time to do this. Such a labor of love.
