PROJECT BRIEFSenior Thesis, to create a project that matters to you. John Bosko is my step-grandfather. He has been a predominant role model in my life and how I carry myself as a person. He taught me how to be strong and do what is right for you. John was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease almost 10 years ago. He struggles with his memory and continues to love life as best as he can. The disease has been slowly taking him away, but that is not what he will be remembered by. He is a storyteller, my earliest memories of him are his love to share stories about history, culture, and most importantly, his own life. His brain continues to keep his memories alive every time he gets to share his stories. His life will continue on through this book to show his life, in his own words, right now. Dear John, preserve, remember, and share.
