Capture the Moment


By Dawn Onley

I’ve been going through old photo albums, as one often does after a loved one dies, and reminiscing on so many wonderful memories. Photographs give us an instant visual reminder. They help us to remember, to fill in the gaps when our memories start to fail us. They help us to document our family’s history.

Take plenty of pictures. Of your children. Of your parents. Of your cousins. Of your aunts and uncles, grandparents and friends. You will be so thankful later. When you’re sad, photographs will help to comfort you and ease your sorrow. I’m so glad my family, at every family gathering, always took a lot of photos. And, we still do.


Photos are treasures that we don’t fully uncover and appreciate until many years later. Take plenty of pictures. Some day, you’ll be so glad you did.
