Try: Begin a project of making a scrapbook of the cr cr’s life using the cr cr’s mementos and photos help the cr attach photos to the pages and emphasize the stories behind the photos encourage the cr to write the stories down or make a small note here and there as the cr cr’s own handwriting will add a special personal touch to the book if necessary type the stories for the cr and attach them to the page with the photos the photos need not be in chronological order allow the cr to tell the life story in the most natural way however it is a good idea to date photos or stories as closely as possible even if you are not putting them in the book in date order you can enhance the book by asking family members and friends to send stories photos or other mementos for inclusion in the book
