Hi Mona,

I showed my mother the video a few months ago, not sure what her reaction would be. She is a very reserved woman, not one to ever seek a spotlight or a microphone. She is as unlikely a narrator as one would ever find. I told her it might be tough to watch, that it was very sad in parts. She laughed and said, "I was there, remember?"

When she viewed it, my sister and I sat on either side of her. She was captivated by it. When it was finished, she turned to us and said, "Isn't it wonderful to see your father?"

Months later, when I asked her if she minded me posting it on the web, she wondered why anyone would be interested in what she had to say.

Again, I sat with her while it played on the website. She shook her head and said, "How did that young man (Jonathan Shepard the film maker) know exactly what parts to use? He did such a good job."

I hope, when I'm her age, and have been through what she's been through, that I will still view the world as she does. WIth love, understanding and compassion.

Thanks for linking to it.
