All of us are working on our family stories. Yes, we are researching facts and collecting data, and digging up stuff about our ancestors. But in the end, isn't it really all about the stories? As we work, we are telling ourselves the story of our family. Some of us will turn that into a form that we can share with the rest of our family. The format we choose will depend on our talents, abilities, and our imagination.
I recently stumbled across a very unique and touching memorial. After the death of her grandmother in 2010, Gemma Green-Hope was helping to sort through her grandmother's things, and decided to use those things to create an animated portrait.
Click here to view Gemma's beautiful testament to her grandmother. I think you will find it a touching and inspirational story.
