Re: Unrepsonsive Relatives
In Response To: Re: Unrepsonsive Relatives ()
Georgia I have started making copies and sending them to relatives; in one instance, a picture of a deceased aunt which her children so appreciated, and old pictures of my deceased sister before her children were born and others throughout her life to her children, my other sisters and even her neices. I am going to continue with that. I have photos that no one else has of aunts, sisters, cousins, neices and nephews in various stages of their lives -- I am going to give them to their family members, framed as gifts, as time goes by.
The only picture I have of my mother when she was young, my cousin gave to me before she lost the rest of the stuff - so I forgive her. (I also made multiple copies for my sibblings.)
The lesson: don't be stingy with pictures: share them and at least some will survive.
God Bless and Good luck in your search.
