The Remembrance Project

morris edit

Alongside the famous deaths in the obituaries, there are the small print columns about the equally loved but lesser-known. Ordinary people who have lived extraordinary lives. Elissa Ely reads between the lines, finding men and women around New England whose stories should not go untold – the lives of those among us. The stories air Tuesdays on Radio Boston and Wednesdays on Morning Edition. The Remembrance Project is produced by the iLab’s Lisa Tobin. Nominate a loved one by emailing
