    I’m glad that your interview with cousin George was #1. Being able to spend time with an elder and pick their brain is such a treasure. I was just saying over Christmas, how I would love to have one more conversation with loved ones have passed away. Xoxo

    Talk about your family. You could write a interesting story about Eric who tells lies to get money from people and never pays them back.
