As a person without children I think of that sometimes. But then again, even if you have children the memory of you disappear in a couple of generations anyway. Not to be too maudlin.

Khan, you and your siblings(?) looked so much like me and mine, even the car is similar.

This is my great-grandfather (far left) who owned a free lunch bar in Chicago at the turn of the last century. I don't know where or when this was taken but it came with a letter from his son saying that the woman on the porch is probably his daughter, my aunt. A friend said, "wouldn't you know it, he's bringing only enough beer for the men."

She is very good looking; but also looks like an armful of trouble.

Most of us--the not-famous--will disappear that way one day. On my account only, that doesn't bother me personally at all. On account of my parents, among "the greatest generation," it does. My wife and I are the children of heroes, as many of you are. It is my job to see that our kids remember them.

My mother and her mother did not get along (to put it politely) and no real family communication had happened since my mother's death in 1987. When Grandma died in 2001, one of my cousins went through her photo albums and scanned in a bunch of pictures. I'd never seen them before. In fact it was the first time I'd seen any photos of my mother before her wedding album.

One undated black & white shot showed my mother with her three older siblings. Judging from their memories, the picture was taken around 1942 when she was five years old. I've cropped it alongside my daughter's kindergarten portrait, taken in 1997-- when she was also five years old.

I know young kids share a lot of common features, but their hair color/texture and eye color are exactly the same. Apparently my sole life's purpose has been to transfer my mother's genes to my daughter, which my spouse finds even less amusing than I do…

This is the portrait our kid set up after our black belt ceremony, so maybe she'll overcome her heritage...
