Age In The Frame – Response 18/06/19

Posted by on Jun 18, 2019 in AGE IN THE FRAME, Works on paper

Participant (18 yrs): I clearly remember sitting on his lap and he would read me stories, and my first word was “Grandad” and my second word was “buttons”, because I would sit on his lap and play with the buttons on his shirt, and he would say they were buttons. So my first two words were to do with him, just because of the relationship I had with him. And even though he died when I was 5, I think having him live in the house with me really benefitted my life, even though it wasn’t for a big portion of it.
