A student in Northern Ireland came up with a cool idea called memory boxes.  He visited 10 people in hospice, and recorded them telling stories before they passed away.  Each wooden box has the person’s name on it . . . the inside looks like an old radio, with a dial to change stations . . . and each station is a different story they told.

The first one he did was with his own grandfather in 2018.  And he gave it to his mom when the grandad passed away.  He says as soon as he saw her reaction, he knew it was something other people might want.
