Original Memory Interview Question

Did you parents have anyone they knew who were also starting families at around the time you were born? Did you guys all hang out together as young kids?


His Response:

Cousins...we had many of them who came up from either New Brunswick or Nova Scotia and some came to live with us part time in the summertime. My Mother said that when she was pregnant with me my Aunt was also pregnant with my cousin who came 12 days after my birth and even today will let everyone know we are cousins and have birthdays the same month.

Original Memory Interview Question

What made your early childhood normal? What made your life special and different?


His Response:

I was raised to believe in the family and the church as a compass for life and it was this belief that helped me through my growing years. All the people in my life were the 'normal' acceptable people you see every day in the schools and in family life in general.

From (Early Life)
Original Memory Interview Question

What growing up "firsts" did your parents tell you about? Was there some kind of story surrounding your first time you walked or first time you said "mom" and "dad"?


His Response:

I was a large baby that is a L-O-N-G one 22 1/2 in. long at birth so when I did start to walk some people thought I was well passed the age that I should have been to start walking. My Mother had to explain to them that I was not really that old at the time and they were amazed at my size. As for speaking it was a day when we were to go to see Gran and my Mother was making ready my stroller for the trip when all of a sudden she heard this little voice say " walk off now" and she turned to see me smiling at her and there was nobody else in the room at the time. It seemed I had gotten the saying from my Dad since he had been in the Army and had also coached sports it was one of his favorite expressions to say "Walk it off now" whenever somebody complained of any injuries or discomfiture.

Original Memory Interview Question

What types of family traditions did you experience at a very early age?


His Response:

We had a tradition of monthly family gatherings hosted at different relatives houses each month unless it was a month that also held a major holiday like Christmas or Easter and in that case it was usually held by my grandmother at her home. We were a very matriarchal family run by the female members of the family like my Grandmother, or an Aunt, or my Mother.
