READ BELOW TO UNDERSTAND IT'S SIGNIFICANCE. THANKS
The man in this video is my Grandad Jack Trudgeon, he was born in Calumet, Michigan in 1920. That's his dock on Sandy Lake, a short drive from the home where he was born. As a child my Grandad would visit his own Grandfather at the very same Lake. It has been throughout his life, a spiritual home.
To fully understand the significance to this film you should watch another of mine called Sandy Lake - Memories. It's a film of my visit to my Grandparents cabin and a film that explains how my Grandad was separated from my Mother ( his eldest daughter ) for 49 years.
This film, of my Grandad sitting on his dock was the main menu for a DVD that I made for my family as a record of my Grandads incredible story.
I am sitting in my Grandparents cabin and we are gearing up to celebrate my Grandads 93rd birthday, today. As I type this message the film is on 2,999,654 views. Clearly, by the time we finish celebrating Grandads birthday the film will have hit 3 million! Special thanks to Otis Redding.
