Many of us gather together documents, photos and other memorabilia to preserve the record of the lives of our loved ones. However, nothing last forever. Paper slowly turns yellow and becomes brittle. Leather slowly turns to dust. Cloth loses its color and gradually weaken and tears at the lightest touch. The letters, documents, photographs and other items that connect us to the past lives of family members are under constant attack. Even digital photographs and scanned letters can be lost due to improper storage media as well as other causes.
