8. Remembering your roots.

What did your loved ones leave you when they passed away? Perhaps you have your grandmother's wedding ring, photographs of your father's first trip to Europe or an old coin from the early 1900's. Look to those who came before you to continue the legacy for those who are still to come.

If you have a copy of your genealogy or family tree, include it as well.
