Who would have thought that one of the Founding Fathers of the United States Mr Benjamin Franklin would have had attributed to him, the saying “That only two things you are certain in life, and they are Death and Paying of Taxes”…
How true that is, and even though we all know this, I find that there are so many people who are not really concerned, about how history or how will history view them, including their family and friends, since they live with the principle, “Live for Today, and let tomorrow take care of itself” …
I can remember being contacted to work on a small project for Mrs Barnet and her husband Mr Barnet, and that was to preserve some Legacy for her boys and family, because they were due to have a 50th Wedding Anniversary.
On meeting Mr & Mrs Barnet, the first thing that struck me was how we got on like a family, the other thing that struck me was when they showed me their wedding album from 1962, the year I was born it was in perfect condition like it was only presented to them recently.
The conversation that followed was funny in parts regarding their journey through life, and with some sadness, when they pointed out that only two people who were alive from their wedding party in 1962.
Because of the brilliant condition of their wedding album, I was not prepared to take the wedding album from Mr & Mrs Barnet home to be copied, so we copied it while we were there.
With further images given to us, we were able to scan and repair some images and put together a Musical Slideshow Presentation. Showing their journey with their friends and family, with every image telling their own story with a little message at the end, a message that was given to my brother and I in our mother final hour of life, which was “We Must Live Good Together Once Me GONE”
Mrs Barnet had her own personal thoughts and with those words, we presented to her a musical slideshow to be shared at her 50th Wedding Anniversary, as well as to be part Mr & Mrs Barnet Legacy Story of their journey together over the last 50 years plus.
Even though we were not available to document her 50th wedding anniversary, we were invited back again, to re work images taken by family members to do another musical slideshow of their 50th wedding anniversary.
Mr & Mrs Barnet are two loving people we will always remember how they invited us to have a share in telling their Legacy Story with the skills we have.
I do hope you will take time to watch some of their journey of images that all have a story behind them by means of the Slideshow Presentations we did.
Enjoy even though the playback on YouTube does not give Mr & Mrs Barnet Images justice…
