Entry Description: After both of my parents died, I found myself in possession of numerous heirlooms and things that would not mean anything to anyone else but me. They evoked a deluge of memories for me. In an effort to preserve these I started photographing these items, sometimes including my adult children with the items that pertained to their namesake or were somehow connected to them. It was a way for me to share my memories with my children and hopefully keep our heritage alive, solidifying roots.
