My daughter got kind of emotional today. Her grandma, my mom, passes away in 2004 and she was kind of missing her and wishing she had had a chance to get to know her better. So I e-mailed all the relatives and asked them to share stories and bits of information about my mom so Dearra could read about her. I think I will also show her some of the old pictures that I have. Any other ideas to help her with this would be greatly appreciated!

Take all the information you have gathered and make a scrapbook out for her. It wil be something she will cherish and reference to. I am sure the other members of the family may enjoy it as well when she shows it off to them.

I am going to post it on my Multiply site for the entire family to see but also print it out for her and give it to her. In the form of a scrapbook is a great idea!

maybe you could ask some of your friends or other family members if they have a copy of videos during your family outings or occasions. she will be much better with videos as it captures all the emotion of your mom

I'm not sure anybody in the family has been into making videos but I will check. Great idea!

I think your ideas might help your daughter know her grandma better. Incidentally the same questions were asked by my son while I was driving him to sports complex. He kept asking questions about my grandparents. What I know about them etc. What a coincidence. © ronaldinu 2008

When she's in the mood. I just posted some of my dad's stories over on Multiply and she wasn't in the mood for reading just then. But she will be!
