Valuable legacy to leave behind for grandchildren

LIFE stories are among the most significant legacies we can leave to our children and grandchildren.

How many of you have wished your deceased relatives had written down the events and circumstances of their lives.

At Writing Life Stories, we are writing what is primarily our story, about our life, our experiences, our feelings and attitudes - written in our own style. It's a good idea to create a timeline or life history calendar so that you don't leave portions of your life out. Be as specific as possible about dates, names, ages and places. These details will help to make your story vivid. U3A Tweed Coast holds a class, Writing Life Stories, with Lynda Tait on Tuesday from 12-2pm at Kingscliff Library.
