Getting to Know My Family
One Generation at a Time
"...Therefore, when we build, let us think we build forever.
Let it not be for present delight nor present use alone. 
Let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for;
and let us think, as we lay stone on stone, 
that the time will come when these stones will be held sacred 
because our hands have touched them,
and  that men will say as they look upon the labour 
and the wrought substance of them,
'See! this our fathers did for us.'"
John Ruskin
