Your memorabilia will be more meaningful if you document and attach a copy of the story on the back of each item. Additionally, take a digital photo of the piece and save it in a folder along with a digital version of the story. You might be most comfortable with typing each story. This is certainly the easiest way to save it. Don’t hesitate to leave handwritten accounts though. Your handwriting will be meaningful to your loved ones. You can snap a photo of shorter notes for your digital file or type up a document from your handwritten version.
