I tell family, business and veterans stories for many occasions.
My Story: Pat Rogers
I’m afraid I haven’t been very good at telling people how much I loved them or cared for them. I saw this as an opportunity to do that.
In three Legacy video recording sessions, long-time (and now retired) Sioux Falls businessman, Realtor and developer sat down with StoryTelling America producer, Rick Lingberg, to share his life story.
The idea to preserve his personal, family and business legacy through video and photos was first suggested to him by his wife Margot.
Later, Pat shared with us some thoughts he had about the experience of recording his story.

"I have often thought about all the stuff I have saved over the years, important things I wanted to get on paper or get on the computer that would give people in our family a little bit of an idea about what life has been like for me. I’m afraid I haven’t been very good at telling people how much I loved them or cared for them. I saw this as an opportunity to do that."
