A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots. Marcus Garvey
I did not have the opportunity to meet three of my four grandparents. Aunt and Uncles? Well they lived in Canada and New Orleans; I grew up far far away, in St. Louis. While the internet has made the world smaller and quite a bit faster; how are we preserving our family legacy for generations to learn about there family history?

The good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge. Bertrand Russell
I am often inspired by family caregivers who share their story; I find story sharing to be healing. One of the reasons I started to blog about our Caregiving experience was to have an outlet to share our story. When we share our story, there is a sense of relief that you have been heard, that your experience might be of help to someone.
Mike Stith from One Legacy has a passion for sharing inspirational stories. Mike has helped families preserve their family legacy through story telling that he captures in a variety of ways. Mike believes that in sharing stories, On Legacy is adding a special piece of history for future generations. I think he is right on target with that assessment.
I did not have the opportunity to meet three of my four grandparents, however I do remember my five older siblings talking about all four of our grandparents with fond memories. How I wish we would have been able to capture my grandparents legacy so that I would have had a better sense of my grandparents. One Legacy is preserving family stories for future generations in a way will capture the hearts of future family generations.
Don’t just take it from me, listen in and learn how Mike Stith from One Legacy is creating Healing Ties all around us!

Affectionately known as “The Bow Tie Guy” in many caregiving circles, the story of Chris MacLellan and his partner, Richard Schiffer was chronicled in a 2015 Pulitzer Prize nominated story “In Sickness and In Health: A Couple’s Final Journey” about their journey of caregiving. The story told of the challenges that LGBT partners have in dealing with the medical and legal system, but it also told of the love and joy that Richard’s last years had on their relationship. Out of this experience Chris has written a powerful and compelling book “What’s The Deal With Caregiving” that informs caregivers on how to deal with the challenges that they will encounter, regardless of sexual orientation, family situation or age. Chris’ soothing style is conveyed through his caregiving blog, The Purple Jacket and podcast entitled Healing Ties where he connects with caregivers and industry experts around the globe through story sharing while providing timely tips for family caregivers. Chris’ Master's Degree thesis entitled, “Spiral of Silence: Caregiving, Stress and its Impact in the Workplace” was accepted by the faculty at Gonzaga University, where Chris earned a Master’s degree in Leadership and Communication. Chris is the founder of The Whole Care Network and presents regularly on topics that impact family caregivers.
