Well, even John Grenham from The Irish Times battles to ensure that family stories, recollections, important details are passed on... read his comments below.... and glean all you can from these stories, you'll wish you did later on.
I would love to hear what is the most told tale from your own family...... for our family, it is one of a few told often by an older relative who has no idea of how many times we've heard them. Each time though, there seems to be a slight difference, not so much by choice, but by a valiant attempt to recall any and everything as he battles with an ever decreasing ability to remember much at all.
Keep listening, support your loved ones, for all too soon, you will be wishing them back to hear that strange tale, just one more time...
