Florence and Richard at Christmas in the basement of the Shepard Rd. home.

During some of my genealogy adventures, I stumble on to some pretty neat stuff. We found some old tapes from Richard Morgan (Jason’s dad) that were in some of the stuff we brought home from the house. Jason recalls his dad taking the expired cassette tapes that Pat brought home from work, putting them in a little radio, and pressing record just to capture some of the things that went on. The following conversation is one of several that we have digitized and placed online for your listening pleasure.

The conversation took place in Richard’s kitchen on Davis Ave. in Cheviot. I think this took place in the 80’s and it was during the time Florence was in a nursing home. Dick would bring Florence home to stay at his house as often as he could just to get her out. This went on for several years while Sandy Sullivan (his sister) would stop over to help. It’s apparent from pictures audio and Jason’s recollection that Dick and Sandy teamed up as much as possible to keep Florence comfortable and remind her that she was loved until her final passing. We consider audio like this pretty fortunate to have. Wonder what Richard was thinking when did this kind of stuff?
