"I was so excited to see these and immediately began thinking of all the family members I wanted to send them to. Parents, an aunt, and multiple distant cousins!"

"I love finding out what my grandparents’ childhood memories are, what they liked to eat for family gatherings, and how they viewed the world. Gathering these kinds of memories from my relatives who are still living brings me so much joy. It’s truly a delightful process!"
