Barry and I have spent many hours recently compiling memory books for my mother-in-law, Dorothy. The albums contain a little information, including names for each photograph, to jog her memory. We hope they will stimulate her failing memory and help her to remember happy moments. Some of her fondest memories are of India, where she lived with her husband and children for three years after the war.
