Memories that she shares with her father, or memories that she shares about her father?
With her father
In the final scene of the memoir, Jeannette intentionally resurrects the memory of her father. Instead of remembering the hardships he caused the family with his alcohol and gambling addictions they instead recognize the very thing that made Rex Walls unique; his propensity for finding excitement...... the stories, the fantasies, the games and the trips. This scene is quite indicative of a larger theme in the memoir of not judging Rose Mary or Rex or criticizing them harshly.
