Why I’ve De­cided Not to Write My Mem­oirs

Reader's Digest - - Letters -

How I wish I could have read my mother’s sto­ries and dis­cussed them with her when she was alive, as Allison Ar­lene Hansen did with her grand­mother. Un­til my mother’s death at age 98, I didn’t know she had writ­ten sto­ries about her life. Af­ter she re­tired from teach­ing, she wrote more than 100 of them, each type­writ­ten and from one to five pages long. Those are now my only mem­o­ries, but that trea­sury al­lows me to live with her again. MARVIN CASE, Bat­tle Ground, Wash­ing­ton
