Thank you for sharing.I really enjoyed it. Brought back a lot of memories. I remember Kip and Becky very well!
Sorry you had an issue with the file Jane. It’s working okay on our side. Is it possible there was an internet issue on your end?
I want to send to a friend but no room for his email address!
My grandfather was Dr. Kelso and I was too young to really get a chance to know him. This is great to read.
Thanks for getting in touch Kelly. Also, We’re trying to locate relatives (children, grandchildren, etc) of Real Eight members, so we’ll put you on the list and let you know if we have any events for the family members!
Can you email me the video interview with my grandfather?
I cant see the above,
