Email to Family and Friends:

Hi – First Name Last Name is writing a few life stories on porchswingstories.com and they want your input.

Would you mind taking a few moments to add to their story? It’s as easy as walking down memory lane.

First Name especially wants you to write about: (what I want them to comment about)

Here are a few additional ideas:

  1. Think about starting your message, Dear Grandpa, or Dear Mom, or whatever is appropriate.
  2. What is a favorite memory of your time with them?
  3. Consider saying one or two things you appreciate about them.
  4. Think about a funny time the two of you shared together.
  5. What is something you like best about them?
  6. What did the two of you enjoy doing together?

Feel free to attach pictures, or a video link if you want to leave a special message.
