You can create a " Memory Jar" for a special friend or relative. Take a pretty jar and fill it with small cards on which you have neatly written (or typed) your memory of a shared experience. Add photos, ticket stubs, etc. if you have any.
I DID SOMETHING SIMILAR WHEN I WAS A HOSPICE NURSE, HAD FAMILY AND FRIENDS WRITE SPECIAL NOTES OR MEMORIES ON SLIPS OF PAPER, PLACED IN JAR FOR VISITORS OR PATIENT TO READ. THIS WAS A GREAT FOR ENCOURAGING VISITORS WHO DID NOT KNOW WHAT TO TALK ABOUT OR HOW TO BE WITH THE PATIENT. WHAT A WONDERFUL ICEBREAKER, LIFE REVIEW, AND CREATED SUPPORT AND COMFORTED BOTH VISITORS AND THE PATIENT. A FUN AND POSITIVE THING FOR EVERYONE.
