Re: Everyone must be....

You know, Auralie, they might very well change their minds some day.  
My nephew, as an adult, has gotten into genealogy and has traced the  
paternal side of my family to before the revolutionary war. Pictures  
from my mother's family were destroyed in a lightening strike on my  
aunt's attic - to my great regret now, but as a young adult, I had  
little interest. And I deeply regret not asking for more "family  
stories" before my parents and grandparents died. I wish I had  
something in writing! That being said, I just "haven't been able to  
get around" to writing up my own memories....
