I’ve been settling some details of my Dad’s estate, who passed away this past October after a long and blessed life. I came across an envelope of pictures that I, my mom, and other relatives had. They entrusted me with them to scan at high resolution to preserve them for the future. And Jenn is going to do a photo book at Shutterfly as a memorial for us and the other relatives to keep. And with the 8th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, I think it’s a fitting memorial to think about loved ones past and present.
It’s only been recently that I’ve felt able to pull that envelope out and look at the pictures – I really miss my dad somethings (tearing up writing this). So for this Foto Friday I wanted to share a few of the better ones that are both Jenn and mine favorites. Thanks for taking a look with me:
It just reminds me of how important photographs and scrapbooking are for the memories they preserve. (See an earlier blog post on that same topic here.) And how important it is for me to get off my lazy you-know-what and scan those pictures!
Which pictures are most valuable to you? Do you have a back-up of them?
