My SiL has asked me to put together a picture board of my FiL's life to display at the gathering after his funeral. At the moment, I have the board on the kitchen table and move things around as the mood takes me. I'm lacking photos of my SiL and one of her sons, hence the cork still visible. Actually, I'm lacking decades of photos, but that can't be helped. Once they are stuck down, my plan is add text over the photos ~ My FiL's name, his nickname, Dad, Grandad, brother, you get the idea. I also thought that I would leave pens and notelets near the board and invite people to share their stories and memories.
It's all about the stories, isn't it?
