Personal

          Reflections

Exclusive to Flatts-n-Family

'Personal Reflections' is like an old suitcase filled with memories, flashbacks and bits-n-pieces

Memories, recollections from the  past, are real to our imagination.

Memories, like shadows, become distorted, faded and ultimately disappear.

Unless recorded...

  • It's time...

  • Time to go private...

  • Time to gather family reflections...

  • Time to save memories for the next generation...

  • Time to move our personal thoughts from the publicity of Facebook...

Personal Reflections is restricted to family...

Personal Reflections requires a password for entry...

Family members are invited contribute to Personal Reflections.
