Leaving a Living Legacy to your grandchildren

Learn how to teach your grandchildren their roots and family history. Kesselman will also discuss how to share your own life’s lessons and wisdom with your grandchildren and teach them about self confidence, self respect, and much more.

The letters in this book follow one of three distinct themes: America 80 years ago, the author’s life and times, and ideas to assist in their personal development. The first allows his grandchildren to understand and appreciate the very different America in which he grew up. The second tells them who he was and how he came to be who he is today. The last group of letters makes them aware of productive personality traits, communication skills, and mind set that will facilitate all their endeavors throughout their lives.

It is truly a primer for life for you and your family.

Books are available on Amazon or at this signing event.

It’s really quite amazing to speak with people about aging, and how staying young at heart can be just as important as diet and exercise when it comes to “staying young.”

With that in mind, here are six quotes we found to be thought-provoking—we hope you enjoy!

“Today is the oldest you’ve ever been, and the youngest you’ll ever be again.” Eleanor Roosevelt

“Laughter is timeless. Imagination has no age. And dreams are forever.” Walt Disney

“Too many people, when they get old, think that they have to live by the calendar.” John Glenn

“Aging is not lost youth but a new stage of opportunity and strength.” Betty Friedan

“It’s paradoxical that the idea of living a long life appeals to everyone, but the idea of getting old doesn’t appeal to anyone.” Andy Rooney

“Grow old with me! The best is yet to be.” Robert Browning
