AARP and Save Family Photos Team Up To Preserve Family Memories
Old photos are like glue that holds our family stories together over time.
My grandmother is many things.
Mostly, she is a force of nature. (And she doesn’t let anyone call her “grandma.” She’s simply Sarah Lincoln.)
Sarah Lincoln has a large, wood-paneled wall of family photos. As a child, I walked along that wall and stared at my family’s faces. I saw my grandparents as children; my father graduating from high school, my uncle as a student in New York City, my aunt at a swim meet, my grandparents on their wedding day. I saw faces full of hopes and dreams…before I ever existed.
In those moments, I realized something powerful. My story started before me.
