I wish I had listened then.
When you began those long old stories, I was bored and ran outdoors to play; or, older, tactfully drew the talk away to light immediate things... and all the while your generation lay, behind your baffled eyes and wistful speech, groping toward mine: and I can never reach it now. The things you did not say are buried with you. For I closed a door, and let you go away, your stories all untold.
I wish I had listened then.

Please don't hoard family history info or photos. Many other people are also descendants/relatives/friends and would enjoy the photos and information. If you have photos, notes, newspaper clippings, etc. in your possession, please share. You never know the comfort someone might receive by seeing a photo of an old friend or relative.
