For my three daughters and one brand new grandchild also a girl to pass on the memory of their brother Luke. Luke was born August 17,1990 and passed away after six months in Hartford, CT hopital, he had his birthday on August 17, 2010, and passed on August 29th 2010, he was only 20 years old.

I want to pass on survival in this world for my daughter to have an independece that allows them to do everything and anything by themselves if the need arises.

I want my children to have the wit to do life by making their own choices.

I want to pass on my love for GOD and the importance of having GOD in their daily lives. 

I want them to be good hearted, responsable people. To help others when they can and never turn away if they can help.

 

Most imprtantly I want my girls to know that family comes first and they should always no matter how petty an argument is, to make amends and keep in-touch with their family and friends so they have people in their lives that will always be there to support them.

 

Charlene Cintron

I want to be able to share with her the family heritage, that is slowly dying off. I want to keep our ancestors alive in the hearts of my grandchildren.

CHRISTMAS EVE GIFT!  Back in my great grandfathers day, when you made your own moonshine, it was custom to say Christmas Eve Gift.  If you said it first to a fellow moonshiner, they had to share a pint of their best with you.  Since we no longer make moonshine, we have carried on this tradition to mean if you say Christmas Eve Gift first to a member of our family (we do include friends) they have to give you a gift to open on Christmas Eve.  These are not expensive gifts, anything from a lottery ticket to a candle, one to five dollars.  It’s the competition and the fun you have.  I have done everything from sneaking up on my dad after midnight to putting it on Facebook.  It’s just fun a competition to do and fun to give.  I hope to pass this on to future generations with the stories on how to get someone and how I’ve been gotten.  It’s so special I even had Christmas pillows made for my siblings to pass down as a reminder after we are gone.

To be honest I thought I was pretty darn lucky. I had two parents at home and grandparents who lived across the street. It was a great childhood. My mother worked back then so my grandparents were my source during the day. My grandfather owned his own shoe repair shop in back of his house. I remember going there after school and sitting there watching him work so efficiently resoling shoes as customers would come in. It was a time I was proud to be part of his family. I was an only child so adult company was part of my life.

I am the proud grandmother of 4 beautiful grandchildren. They range in ages from 17 to 3 years old. I would love to have this book to pass down my love of the written word. I am afraid the current generation is slipping away “one cell phone at a time” from the world of the written and spoken word! To me, the ability to communicate is one of the most important factors in retaining our humanity. I am 65 years old and I still get excited when I hear or see a word I don’t know! ( although I am guilty of running to my phone to ask Siri for the definition!) I am not a “good” writer by any means but having this book would give me the opportunity to have guidelines to follow. Thank-you!

At the moment I have 30 grandchildren.  What I would tell them is how my life started out.

How at the age of 9, I saw my Mother brutally attacked by my Father.  How my twin brother and I along with our younger brother were put into a foster home.  How we stayed there very happily for 3 years and then was seperated and moved into another foster home.  I would tell them about all the adversities that I had to endure and how I overcame all of them.  How after 2 failed marriages, I finally was found by a wonderful man and married.  How I died being one of the most beloved, cared for, Wife, Mother and Grandmother.  I would tell them my rise from being a Secretary to a Database Administrator and then to owning my own business.  I would tell them that through it all I had the love of Jesus and even when I didn't realize he was with me, he was always standing right beside me.  That when I was still I could hear him and he guided me.

We started camping when our sons were  small and continue to camp. They both camp now with their wives and children. My grands love to hear of all the escapes we went to and the fun we had.

I want my Grandchildren to have lasting memories. Their Grandfather died when their parents were young so this book would be a perfect way to document what their grandpa was like and to share special memories of a man they never were able to meet. My grandparents died before I was born too and it would have been nice to have known more about them and how I might be like them.
