dc.description.abstract After taking Honors 199 as a family writing course, I realized that I have a talent and a strong interest in writing memoirs about my life. I have compiled a cd of very specific songs that will forever remind me of my family as a whole or as individuals. They are our favorite artists, songs only we know, or songs with symbolic lyrics.I have also included a memoir for each song. They include where I've heard it, what was occurring, who was there, why it's important, etc. These stories capture moments I don't want to forget. My hope is that other people will enjoy reading these memoirs as well because they will not just describe where the importance of the song takes place, but will have a meaningful and touching story to go along with it. From doing this thesis, I have become more aware of the importance of my family and have done my best to capture it on paper. I have improved my writing skills and hope that I will continue to do so in the future. These stories are meant to be read so perhaps others can easily see themselves in a similar situation and be entertained or even moved.
