My studio won two national awards from Home Video Studios Inc, for best This is Your LifeTime video a few years ago. These were projects I did for customers who had lost a loved one and wanted to honor their lives through photos, video, film, narration and music.
I started video taping my parents while they were still alive and healthy. We took time to record them reminiscing over family photo albums, talking about when and where photos were taken and sometimes arguing about it; a microcosm of family life.
I have better equipment and greater skill now than I had back then, but it was a blessing to get them recorded. I can share their story with my grand children who will not have had the pleasure of knowing them.
I miss my parents. I am glad that we were able to honor them in this way.
