These stories are your stories. A few minor changes may have had to be made, in spelling or punctuation, for some stories to be more readable. But those are still your stories, as you wanted to tell and pass them along to future generations. Historical authenticity cannot be guaranteed by the compilers or the publishers of this book, but the care and love that went into the writing of each story can be verified.
