If you scan it, it basically becomes a picture. But there are utilities like IrfanView that will allow to you add text to it.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I'll add to my answer later when my wife returns from work. She does it all of the time. It's been a while since I've used a scanner, but I'm sure with the proper OCR software you can scan it and save it as a text document and make whatever changes you want to it
