Overview

“You don’t have to be a millionaire to leave a legacy,” someone has said. We attempted to capture family history on paper as part of our legacy. Another concept, “Every time someone passes away, a library is lost.”

With these two thoughts in mind, these men and women are sharing some of their stories in this book. We did numerous assignments, but first, we’ll share what we wrote for the last assignment in March 2012: The Secret of Happiness.

This was preceded by writing our obituaries. We were all a bit hesitant to do this project. But once again, it turned out to be worthwhile in numerous ways.

Then you’ll read some of the life stories that everyone wrote. They are the result of the larger part of the assignments that we worked on. In class, we’d read aloud what we’d written. Not only did we get to know one another, but we also got ideas to help us in our own writing.
