I lost one of my aunts recently and I wanted to do a little memorial for her. I wish that I had more to tell about her. My memories only include gatherings at grandma's house during my childhood. I can only hope that one of her children will write up a history about her.
It seems that as we grow and get more involved with fulfilling our own lives we tend to lose touch with those relatives who live elsewhere. Sending Christmas cards every year just doesn't seem to compare with the family gatherings of yore.
I have never made a new year's resolution, but if I did, I think it would be to try and make contact with all of my relatives more often -- phone calls, letters, etc. After reading all the letters and postcards that my great-grandmother saved I find myself wanting to start writing letters again; even postcards. I only hope that they will write back!
