Rob commented on How to Remember the Dead

RS86, check out my idea in this same category: "I remember when...". See if you find some similar thinking. I do.

And I'm sorry about your father. It's bloody hard on everyone. And most of us aren't very good at dealing with these things. Why would we be, when the world seems to want to carry on as it was...?


Rob commented on Footprints

I like this idea, Jim. How it connects current lives with the past, and shows that we're part of the warp and weft of life. It could be a very useful social history asset, as well as a more personal, individual or family, resource. 

Does it assume that a persons/family have been in an area for some time? In which case, it wouldn't suit all... 


Rob commented on I remember when...

That is a splendid idea Sue. I personally don't want Take That at my funeral, but Elvis and Fats Waller are welcome. Anyway, there are some themes emerging between different ideas here.

What strikes me is that the idea of having a 'place' of memories interests people. The tricker bits are:

1. Who talks? (Dying person, friends, family.)
2. Who curates?
3. Who owns the site?

Thanks for your thoughts, Sue.
