Who Will Light Incense When Mother’s Gone? My mother turned 70 recently, and though she remains a vivacious woman - Her hair is still mostly black, and there is still a girlish twang in her laughter - mortality is nevertheless heavy on her soul. After the gifts were opened and the cake eaten, mother nevertheless whispered this confidence to her younger sister: “Who will light incense to the dead when I’m gone?” My aunt shook her head and said. “Honestly, I don't know. None of my children will do it, and we can forget the grandchildren.

Reading became a passion with him as well as writing. He carried books and pen hidden under his clothes and read and write wherever he could. Brandon’s education in Elementary was maintained throughout six years with honors and awards each year. He was quickly preparing to enter the secondary.

“How I Learned about the Power of Writing” by Richard Bullock “How I Learned about the Power of Writing” tells us about the story of Richard Bullock on how he learned how to read as a child. He starts off by telling us about his grandparents moving in with his family when he was little in their house at Willoughby, Ohio. He tells us about his grandmother reading to him classic stories, teaching him how to plant African Violets and teaching him on how to read the time—and because of that, he was motivated to read more only by the age of three. He recalls to us that when he was young, he used to fetch the early paper and read about the case of Dr. Sam Sheppard. Because Bullock's grandmother only received formal education until eighth grade, and his mother a high school graduate, and his father being a high school dropout, he was taught by his grandmother to love learning.
