Our listeners have been generous with their family stories, especially the ones that show how caring, human, and sacrificial fathers and grandfathers can be.
For many of us, our fathers and grandfathers are gone - one aim of this podcast and the blogs posted earlier this past week is to inspire folks to write down those memories before they are forgotten. And if you father or grandfather is still living, get him to share the information before it is lost!
