My brother discovered and digitized a few hundred very old family photos and slides. This week he sent me a link to access his dropbox of photos--so many documented moments and events that evoke memories and reflection!
Three of my favorite scenes show my maternal grandfather when he visited us in far away Argentina. He was a very busy Baptist minister who got away for a few weeks to travel and see first hand our family's life and work. He did this twice by becoming a chaplain on a passenger ship to South America.

Then my aunt sent me a copy of Grandpa's last will and testament signed June 11, 1959, and there I read Grandpa's deepest desire for all of us his descendants.
"May there not be one of all my house, children, grandchildren and future generations, missing from the eternal kingdom of our Lord."
