A note from Dee:

"I created this project because of an idea I had after my Grandfather passed away. First, I wished I could have given him, in his final years, a nursing home with days full of his favorite things to do - checking on a field, checking on farm animals, talking with the guys over coffee, etc. - a real "Farmer's Nursing Home".

BUT - I also wished I would have sat down and interviewed him and asked him questions about HIS LIFE. I wished I would have created a scrapbook or a compilation of his answers somehow and in so doing really showed him that his life had meaning.

That his life had value.  

I did sit with him and video recorded a few questions of his time in World War 2 and it is so deeply moving to watch. I only wish I would have done the same with questions about his childhood, his teenage years, his young adult years newly married to my grandmother, his years as a father, then grandpa, then great-grandpa.  And then...I wish I would have done the same with my other grandparents I no longer have. 

 

I believe I had that idea for a reason - and the reason was to give people a feeling of VALUE."   Dee
