We want to paint a picture with words.
No - we want do more that 'one picture is worth a thousand words' we want a BIG FAT BOOK of words.
What do you remember from being 4?
Or 3 months?
Not much, huh?
So we want to create a book.
With YOUR words.
Here is how.
Write memories, recollections, specific details....all the little things.
I remember one time....
Oh, once we were....
Those memories...lots of them.
Can't you just see this big fat yummy book full of them?
It doesn't have to be fancy - on the back of an envelope - scrawled on a napkin.
We will take it just as it comes tumbling out of your memory.
What was his smile like?
What do you know that made him happy?
Was he ever into mischief?
Did you ever hear his testimony?
Was he silly?
What 5 words best describe him?
Details....write in detail, his walk, his look, the way his eyes twinkled, the way he interacted with his children.
HOW WAS HE WITH HIS CHILDREN?
Oh, you can be sure, Shelley will share but we want more...a Matthew - Mark - Luke - John kind of more.
But this will be every Billy - Susan - Jon - Mary's record
