Nice post. Understanding the true value of a family legacy contributes to a feeling of unity and purpose. Keep in mind that you may already have a head-start on building your own documented family legacy. Photographs are an obvious example, but even things such as recipes, sheet music for songs, family heirlooms and more all serve the purpose of building a family history for future generations of the family to cherish. Money provides some physical security, but it can never truly provide the security of mind that only priceless memories can preserve.
