Why You Should Preserve Your Memories, and Keep Them Well
“Preserve your memories, keep them well; what you forget you can never retell.” -Louisa May Alcott
Meet my grandmother, Lura Facemyer, who passed away a few years ago at 98 years old.
This photo was taken in about 1930 and is striking for how youthful, beautiful and stylish she looks.
I knew her only in the last quarter of her life, but I could always bring a smile to her face when I showed her this photo. She would usually launch into stories about that time in her life: living through the Great Depression, helping take care of her 11 brothers and sisters or meeting my grandfather.
Now, it brings a smile to my face when I look at it. ~shared by @alanpittman
