This is for you.

It is for my family, especially my cousins, that I do this. Hope you enjoy reading pieces of grandma and grandpa's history as I know I will enjoy reading and typing it out for you. This is my gift to you. I think both grandma and grandpa would appreciate my sharing a small piece of their lives with you, and I think that is why grandma wrote in a journal, so one day we could live a part of her and grandpa's history. I am also planning on scanning every picture that I can for you and burning all onto a CD for all to have, even the great-grandchildren, if they so desire to have one. Enjoy this daily journey into our family's history. I don't think there are many families out there who have such an amazing collection of memories from generations past. We are really blessed. Thank you, Grandma.

Love,
Valerie

Hey Valerie I think it's great that you are doing this!! I would definately love to have a copy of the CD that you are making!! It just warms my heart that you are doing so many nice things like this for our family! If you also get a chance I was wondering if maybe you could scan some of the diary at least for me to keep because I was so dearly clsoe to grandma and I would really appreciate having just one more piece of her life, until I will be able to see her again up in heaven, which I hope is a long time from now. So, I would really enjoy finding out as much as I can. well i g2g I hope you'll reply back to me! *toodles* ~~~Love your cousin KELSIE~~~
