Russellville, MO, August 10, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Ken Willingham, a small-town country man and current senior of the Willingham clan making good on his vow to document his life before he goes, has completed his new book, “Life in the Country through the Eyes of a Kid: The Good Ole Days (1942–1956)”: an engaging memoir straight from the heart and sharp memory of a country boy.
Ken shares, “A problem arises when thinking about where to start when remembering the times and trials of your youth due to the author having seventy-five years to look back upon. If you look back to all the good times that you were blessed with while growing up, it would take nearly an entire lifetime to bring up on the memory screen everything that you remember, that you think you remember, and everything that made you what you are today. As Dolly Parton said in her song, ‘We had no money, but we were rich as we could be.’ There is little doubt that what you are today is a direct response to your parents, your culture, your teachings, and your beliefs. Everything that we are is directly linked to dear ole Mom and dear ole Dad. If everything goes according to plan, you will be for your children almost identical to what your parents were to you.”
