Kathy,
Thanks so much for your positive comments! I hope to do more series along these lines and can't wait to get started. Three of my grandparents passed away before I was born and I am always looking for ways to connect with them and also share their stories with my children.

Liz

Les R. - thanks too for letting me know you noticed it on the homepage. I have seen it twice on there and each time it was very exciting!
