Preserving Memories of a Loved One?

August 14th, 2010 08:02 admin Leave a comment Go to comments

An anonymous reader writes “My wife is dying of metastatic (stage 4) cancer. Statistically she has between one and two years left. I have pre-teen daughters. I’m looking for innovative ideas on how to preserve memories of their mother and my wife so that years down the road we don’t forget the things we all tend to forget about a person as time passes. I have copious photos and am taking as much HD video as I can without being a jerk, so images and sounds are taken care of (and backed up securely). I’m keeping a private blog of simple daily events that help me remember the things in between the hospitalizations and treatments. In this digital age what other avenues are there for preserving memories? Non-digital suggestions would be welcome, too.”
