Stories in Time

in History

I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the 4th of July than to honor some of the folks who have helped shape  America. One of the best parts of my job is that I get to hear LOTS of stories from our clients. I’ve always said that you do not have to be a Thomas Jefferson to have had an interesting life. We’ve had client’s, or their immediate family, who’ve helped trail blaze Alaska, who was part of a circus in Romania before immigrating to the US, one was the grandmother of a member of a well-known hard rock group, one’s husband helped design the in-flight refueling system. Everyone has a story. Even my own mother, not a well know personality but she left her home at age 22 to get married and follow my father around the world in his Army career. She once bought 50 unworkable clocks from a junk man, named Mr. Seven, in Germany. She fixed them all and sold them, one even to a very young Pavarotti for his wife! I still have one of those clocks in my own home. If you have a senior in your life, ask them about their story….it WILL be fascinating!
