I Will Embarrass Mom Graham and Tell Story When I Live in an Attic for 1 Dollar Per Day in USA

Andy, try to track him down! And if he is deceased, try to find his family. My grandfather died in the late 1950's when my mom was only 15 years old... obviously long before I was born. He was a bank vice president in my small mid-western city.
Around 1990, a man tracked down my mother (can you imagine trying to do that without the internet!). He was a mid-50ish black man from Chicago passing through on his way to a business meeting. He made the extraordinary effort to find my mom just so he could tell us the story of my grandfather. Apparently, my grandfather was the only banker in our town willing to give a small business loan to this black man. He told us that even though his business eventually failed (he still paid back the loan), he learned from his mistakes, moved to Chicago and tried again.... eventually building a successful business with over 50 employees... a business that supported his family and put four kids through college!
That was one of the best days of my mom's life. To hear an amazing story about her father and the impact he made on one life.
This man obviously made an impact on your life. Track him down... or his family... share with them what you just shared with your subscribers. I bet it will be one of the best days of their lives.
