These silver knives line up with pride (despite their nicks and dents) in their flatware chests, protected by the aged flannel liner. Monogrammed with paternal grandparents' initials, they serve as a family tribute dating more than 100 years. If only they could tell their stories...

 

Though they may lose appreciation through the next generation, their stories and all of the present and future ones beg preservation and 'passing on'. Are all of our stories worth telling? Only the future will determine the answers, but if they are not documented, there will be no record from which to make that evaluation. There are so many ways to tell our stories these days - make it a part of your ritual! Naples, FL
