There was an article on the BBC News this morning about hospice care and the dying being given the opportunity to make an audio recording of their life story. This seemed to be achieved as a 'prompted conversation' with the speaker simply sharing memories.
I think this is lovely idea - a wonderful legacy for family and a wonderful way to feel you have left something of yourself, your likes, your loves, your work and industry for others to know about.
Years and years ago, my DS1 made a tape recording of my mum and dad talking about their memories of WW11 and funnily enough, we were just talking abut the tape this weekend and saying how nice it would be to locate it - sure it must be in a safe place somewhere between our 2 houses - and how lovely it would be just to hear their voices.
I would be happy to make a recording - not that I have anything stunning to say, but I think the family might like it. What about you?
