We are so fortunate to have many audio and video options to preserve our loved ones’ lives more fully than ever before. My dad passed away when I was still in college when he was only 54 years old and I have absolutely no recording of his voice. I would dearly love to hear his voice again, but all of the movies from my childhood were Super 8 and 8mm film with no sound. Fortunately current technology gives us ways to share audio and video with our kids and grandkids and beyond so I want to encourage you to record snippets of your life for kids and grandkids with both audio and video. Snap that selfie with your loved ones, then switch to video and record a snippet with your voices included. The sound is as precious as the photos.
