Years ago I asked my mother to write about her childhood. She finally did, calls it Memories. I think it took her years, and ends (last entry 5 Jul 2006) during her last years before she died of multiple myeloma in 2006. It is a sad but very honest story. Much information on her maternal and paternal family. She says she was surprised she remembered so much. And wonders what all she has forgotten. Near the end she also veers into her later life and of her children that I would have to omit.
I was thinking of putting it on a space page and connecting to the people mentioned.
She was born in 1928 so during the depression years life was tough. I just ran across it again.. been packed away for years. She made binded copies for all of us. It is 39 pages, but at page 35 I would have to start editing, maybe earlier. I guess I would make it a PDF.
What are your thoughts on this? It is sad, makes me cry in places for what my mother lived through, but many happy memories for her as well, but such an honest description of her life. But maybe not something others would want to read. But most coming to her page would be family and they may. Sort of torn.
