On his way to the train station, Jason said he had just watched a documentary about his grandmother.
“I said, ‘Oh, I’m going to the movie theatre and I’m not going to sit down and watch this’,” he said.
“But I thought, ‘That’s cool, I’ll go and do it anyway’.” After a few hours at the cinema, Jason went home and sat down to watch the film.
“The thing that was most interesting about it was that it wasn’t a documentary, it was an interview,” he said, “where my grandmother talks about what she was like, her childhood and her family, and she talks about her love of film.”
I thought, I know how to talk about my family and I know about my grandparents, and I was just going to say to my grandpa what she had said.
“It’s called, ‘The Legacy of the Long Walk’.””
So I started to think about what I wanted to say about my own grandparents, what they did, how they got there, and how they made it.””

What happened next Jason and his family were in their car driving down the highway, and when they got to the next town, they were greeted by a huge crowd.””
So, after watching the film for a while, I realised I was going to have to get to know them.”
What happened next Jason and his family were in their car driving down the highway, and when they got to the next town, they were greeted by a huge crowd.
“There was no traffic, just a bunch of people, and they just kept stopping and chatting,” he laughed.
“My grandma had to go get the mail.”
When we got to this other town, I got the news from my grandma.
And she said, I didn’t know, I haven’t met your grandpa, but he’s a great guy and he’s really nice.
“Jason said that while he had met his grandfather before, this was the first time they were in the same place at the same time.”
And so I said, what is your name?
And she just said, Jason,” he recalled.”
So, I just kind of smiled and said, OK, you’re Jason and your grandparents are my grandparents.
“She said, well, I think I know who your grandparents were.”
Jason and Laura had been together since the age of five.
“My grandma and my dad were in different cities, but we were always very close,” he explained.
“The kids used to come up to me at night and I would just talk to them about how we used to play in the backyard, how we would play games, and talk about all the stuff that we did.”
They would say, my dad would be in his room with his books and he would come in and write poetry.
“He’d just be like a little kid and he’d just write poetry.”
Jason recalled that they went to a local library together, and while his grandma read to him, Jason’s father would be there too, reading.
“As soon as he’d finished his reading, he’d walk in and say hello and I’d say hello back,” Jason said.
Jason said he always wanted to be a doctor, but his parents weren’t sure.
“That’s what I was really excited about, because they were always going to make the decision for me,” he remembered.
“You know, my mom and dad said, if you’re going to do it, you should be a lawyer.”
Then my dad got a job, and we’d get to go out and watch movies, and go to the movies and go out to dinner, and then we’d go home.
“Jason is a trained architect and designer, and Laura is a professional graphic designer.”
We were always in love, you know,” he continued.”
At one point, we were talking about how much we loved each other, and our families.
“Just the way we looked at it, we loved one another.”
Even though we had different parents, we just had this mutual love for one another.
“Jason’s family were also very close, and he said his grandfather would call to tell them when he got a new phone.”
Whenever we got a call from him, he always made sure to make it short and sweet.””
If he hadn’t got a phone, he was just so nice to me.”
Whenever we got a call from him, he always made sure to make it short and sweet.
“Every time we got an email from him he would just send me a picture, so that was really great.”
Jason says his family are also
