A friend once asked why I study my family's history. The simple truth is that I love my family very much and will miss those who have passed away until it's my time to join them. To honor their memory in this way ... keeping it alive for those who come after me ... is such a small tribute to the happy years we shared together. My (only) regret is that I did not get "hooked" on genealogy in time to ask my grandparents all the questions I am chasing now.
On the other hand, it's like a good book, isn't it? You turn each page slowly and savor every chapter because you don't want the story to end!!! ~Judi Heit
