No Regrets

Updated: Jul 25, 2023

It's a common regret that many people have after a loved one passes away - not having talked to them enough or recorded their stories. It's important to take the time to sit down and have conversations with our elderly relatives while they are still with us, and to record their stories for future generations.


People often overlook the importance of someone's voice when recording their stories. A voice is very much part of someone's identity - almost as much so as their visual image. Think of someone close to you, and you will probably visualise their face - but you will probably also imagine their voice. This is why we encourage everyone to preserve an audio recording of their voice. When someone is no longer with us, it is often their voice you will miss.


By talking to our relatives, we can learn about their experiences, their values, and their perspectives on life. These conversations can provide invaluable insights that can help us understand ourselves better, and connect us to our family history and traditions.


Recording these conversations can also ensure that the stories are preserved for future generations. With technology such as smartphones, it's easy to record audio or video conversations with our loved ones. These recordings can serve as a treasured keepsake for future generations, and can help keep the memories of our loved ones alive.


Sometimes it can be hard to start a conversation which is where we can also help. A simple prompt sheet can give you ideas for topics to chat about which can be helpful (we offer a free service to help create you a personalised prompt sheet tailored to you, just contact us for an example).


It's important to remember that our loved ones won't be with us forever. By taking the time to talk to them and record their stories, we can ensure that their legacy lives on and that their memories are cherished for generations to come. Don't wait until it's too late - take the time to talk to your elderly relatives today.
