This experience is one of the best things I've ever done. It lived up to every expectation I had for it. I asked mom one simple question - what were your happiest times, but I asked her that question in relation to the people that were most important in our lives. Every person I asked her about, besides me, has passed away, but it is our memories that live on.This recording will always help me remember mom and her happy times - and my happy times with her.
Check StoryCorps out for yourself. I promise you both laughter and tears. I strongly suggest if the mobile unit is in your area (or if you are lucky enough to live near a permanent unit) to take advantage of the opportunity. You'll be happy you did.
