Older family members have many stories to share with the younger members
of their family. Too often, however, our parents and grandparents are gone before we collect these stories and put them in
a medium that can be passed on to future generations.
Fred D'Ignazio of Video Life Narrative knows what you are going through. His mother Libby has a failing
memory. For her 80th birthday Fred created a DVD and presented it on a big screen for the family members and friends who assembled
to honor Libby. The video told Libby's life story in pictures. Fred interviewed his father, Babe, to tell the stories of Libby's
life that accompanied the pictures.
All the family members now have a copy of the DVD to share with their children and, eventually, the
grandchildren. Babe and Libby watch the video frequently. Babe's narrative and the dozens of pictures energize Libby's memory,
and she is able to reconstruct her life again and again, as she watches her life unfold on the TV screen.
