Guideposts;Oct2008, Vol. 63 Issue 8, p12
The author shares his experiences of relieving the collection of books written by his aunt who died recently. Along with his uncle, the author went through the books of his aunt and wrote down every title, and then made copies of the list they had created. His uncle told him to pass on the books to his children and grandchildren so that his aunt's legacy and love of books will always remain. He also notes that some of the books will be donated to the public library for many others to enjoy.
