If you listen to someone, have conversations with them - record the stories - with an audio recorder, or film/video it.
They'll re-live it too.
There can be satisfaction knowing those stories are now permanent and can be heard or watched at any time.
It's an easy way to leave your mark.
They'll know future relatives - and others interested can have a library of your stories.
This adds to the piece of mind at the end of their life. It's therapeutic.
- How much do you wish you could watch a DVD or go to YouTube and watch old interviews of your grand parents, great grandparents and more relatives?
Now you can provide the same to others... And create that world/collection.
