  1. You express your own feelings and memories so beautifully, Jerry. But a house, while it stands, is perhaps still capable of becoming another man’s dreams and history. It looks to be worth preserving in some form or other.

        I can imagine that you would. My childhood home is still standing but it was sold to a farmer who doesn’t keep the farm up like my dad did. Dad always wanted everything in tip-top shape. It’s hard to see it slowly falling apart, begging for someone to love it again. As hard as it is for me, it would be even more difficult if it was no longer there. At least now, there is some hope that someone will have some pity and decide to fix it up again.

  2. how beautiful to read this, to acknowledge a house that has “housed” and kept memories we just look at and it all comes flooding back. the beauty in the faded exterior like an old black and white photograph.
