Personal Histories: Bill
Bill wanted to give his daughter, Christine, a family video for her 40th birthday. He brought us about 140 family photos. Bill didn't want to be videotaped but we explained that the video would be far more interesting and valuable with some narration. Bill reluctantly agreed to let us record his voice. He was so worried about it that he stopped several times and asked if he was doing ok, and asked if everyone got this nervous. We assured him he was doing just fine and we got the whole story. Only after the video was completed and Bill had cried all the way through watching it, did we learn that Bill had cancer and that this would be the last birthday gift that he would ever give to his daughter.
This video excerpt covers the time when Bill moved his family to California. Note that the four photos of the scenic attractions are stock photos added by Legacy Videos to help tell the story. Be sure to listen to the audio clip of Bill's reaction just after watching his finished video for the first time.
