It could be brothers and sisters swapping stories about their parents as they were growing up; about how much they are loved and appreciated . . . to give as an anniversary gift.
It could an adult wanting to record the stories of an aging parent or grandparent who is slowing losing their memories to dementia or Alzheimer disease.
It could be a parent diagnosed with a life-ending disease who wants to share her stories with those family members she won’t see grow up. So, they know who she was and how much she cared for them.
