Memories Project

As shared by you

“There were a number of occasions, before my birth, which could have meant my father's death.

He could easily have drowned...three times! It was someone's unwillingness to ignore their gut feeling that saved him in one of those cases.

There were a couple of scary road incidents - one in which my dad's car rolled; and another where my mother was in the car with him.

Back when working construction on the World Trade Center, he once dodged a gas explosion while picking up lunch with his brother at a local restaurant; and, another time, was saved by his boss, who, as they both ran to safety, knew exactly how to react when my father's vest caught fire. 

There were a few tears on my part as I listened, however, hearing my father tell his stories is something I cherish. Hearing the details, I'm just glad he lived to tell!”

More than ever, we've been reminded to cherish life. At AYSA, we want to celebrate memories by using our website to publish stories, as contributed by you. Accompanied by your own photos, we wish to spread warmth and inspiration during these unprecedented times, and so, happy stories are also absolutely welcome! [Not a confident writer? We'll do our best to help!]

It's understood that being isolated during this pandemic has taken a toll. For Canadian seniors, we hope to increase human contact by offering our high school student volunteers who look forward to listening to life experiences that are meant to be shared. Remotely, volunteers are available to help put thoughts into writing, as well as remind our seniors how important they are to us.

We look forward to hearing from you. In the meantime, enjoy the heartfelt words submitted about Grandma Lan below.

Thank you and stay well!
