“An excerpt from a research paper written by a high school student: I don't have the privilege to remember my great-grandfather Wallace, and sadly never had the chance to appreciate knowing my great-grandmother Inga-as she passed away when I was too young to realize how much I could gain from getting to know her. Thanks to their daughter (my great-aunt Carol Culbertson), I was lucky enough to have extensive knowledge of both of their lives...... I conclude my project, in the peace of mind and knowledge that this great man lived a full and prosperous life, with not a moment of passion wasted.”
