I am that guy, the one who buys other peoples memories. You know the weirdo with boxes of old photos, home movies, letters, handwritten recipes, and anything else that tells a story. I buy these things because it is important to remember the things that were important to those before us.
Normal life needs to be celebrated as much as the famous life. We all are important in moving our world forward. One man can change the course of another’s life without knowing it at the time. And, these memories and stories are changing me even after these people have passed on.
It is amazing to see a time long gone from the point of view of that person through letters, postcards, greeting cards, recipes, photos, and film. This is why I am that weirdo. Please join me because it is important to remember the things that were important to those before us.
“Again thank you for what you have done. This film is of me and my firstborn daughter who is now 48. She was so excited to see this. I will pray for you as you continue your work to uncover people’s memories. I know there will be others who are touched by what you do. God bless you!!!”
“A while ago I found the pictures from the 371st Fighter Group. My father is in several of these pictures. He shows up in the pictures with his plane “Peg-o-My Heart” named after my mother. This was quite a find for me and my family, particularly the one where he is sitting in the cockpit of his plane. Just an FYI for you and thanks for posting.”
