INTERVIEW ELDER PERSON 2 Interviewing an Elder Person As adults move into old age it can make their life seem more difficult The person I chose to write my paper about is my grandfather, Pete Jones. He is my mother’s father. I have always had a close bond with my mother’s parents, I used to spend every summer with them. The reason I had chosen my grandfather to interview is because I have always been close with him, but I have never asked him most of these interesting questions.

He has told me some of his stories of him growing and most of them are interesting. To hear how different things are from then to now is truly mind-blowing. Going into this assignment I felt that this would make my bond with my grandpa stronger. Pete was born January 14 th , 1953 in Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina. He had three brothers and four sisters. Sadly, one of his sisters passed away as a week-old baby from pneumonia. He told me that he wishes he could have grown up with her, because then he would have had a sibling that was close to his age.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
