      Harry there is nothing greater that you can pass on to your children
      than your history and knowledge. There isn't much that gives me more
      pleasure than passing on a love for fishing, hunting, or baseball to
      my 13 year old. And when he questions me to make sure he will someday
      inherit my portion of my grandparents farm, I realize that some of
      the things he hears actually does sink in.
