On Thursday morning March 14, I went to a local meeting of Business Network International, BNI.  Came the moment when it was my time to pitch my service, I really focused.  I stood, I leaned forward, my knuckles on the table, and I looked at my audience and asked:


“How many of you really know your parents? How surprised you would be if you gave them the gift of their memoir.


And how many of your kids really understand your lives?  How surprised they would be if you gave them the gift of your memoir.


Nobody wants to be forgotten. Don’t let this important task wait another year.”


I think I refined that pretty well.  I could still use some work but I got a good comment on it after the meeting.
