Grandfather Amos John Shepard's "Profile of a Senior Citizen," circa 1988

The is a letter my Grand-father Amos John Shepard "typed" to me in 1988. He bought a typewriter and was teaching himself how to use it. I believe he copied this article out of a local newspaper and sent it off to his little Grand-daughter, as an attempt to educate her on his perspective of life.
