Greg & Grandma
Greg & his no-nonsense Grandma were best friends. As more people took notice of his civic efforts, they also noticed the extent to which she influenced him. As a result, in the last decade of her otherwise quiet life, Grandma found herself in the spotlight -- gracing covers of magazines like Senior News and NonProfit Times. The book, The Silhouette Man, is based on their story. It was recognized in Canada with the Wisdom Speaks honor -- given to a book that celebrates the wisdom of seniors. The books have been used with seniors, those who serve seniors, and intergenerational programs. Greg has spoken at events for older adults &/or those who serve older adults &/or intergenerational events. In some cases, he has served as 'Grandkid-in-Residence' at a community for older adults. During the Pandemic, he has partnered with retirement communities & other senior-serving organizations on long-distance projects.
