Those That Have Gone Before
September 24, 2013
I guess one doesn’t really think about death much until it hits close to home. My best friend, Ted, passed away in 2003. He was the father of a childhood friend, and we became very close. He had such a wonderful mind with his lifetime of knowledge; we would sit and talk for hours about anything and everything. I remember him well, but for those people who would want to know more about him in the future, an obituary doesn’t quite cover all that he was. If we don’t write down or record all these memories, future generations won’t know all that we were in life.
The Midwest Genealogy Center has a program called Tell Me A Story. You can come in and record those wonderful memories and stories about the people you know so well or even yourself to preserve for future generations that ask the question,” I wonder what he was like?”
