Some people don’t want to delve into those boxes of photo memories because they expect it to be a bittersweet process seeing people who have passed away. It is absolutely true that organizing your photo collection can be a very emotional process. The good news is that the happy memories will outweigh the sad ones. I’ve seen it time and again and I promise you, the happy memories will prevail.
Keep in mind that your kids will remember you and they will likely remember their grandparents, but do they know much about YOUR grandparents? What happens when YOU are the great-grandparent that no one remembers? An organized photo legacy will ensure that everyone is memorialized properly. It’s worth wading through the bittersweet memories to make that happen.
