I've seen Clara's videos before. A friend of mine relayed them to me. And I also like the idea of establishing a legacy for those in the waning years. Hell, we're all in the waning years but just don't know it.

interesting YouTube channel. Clara is 91 years old in the first video. Her channel has 166K subscribers, her videos have had millions of views and there's even a book. Who knew that recipes from the Great Depression would be a great niche?Video #1

Here she is at 95 making Italian ice. "I never thought anyone would care anything about my experiences with the world but I enjoyed very much telling them to you and I hope you enjoyed listening..."Video #2

Clara passed away in 2013 at 98. I think her channel has even more viewers now than when she was alive - it just keeps on getting new subscribers. How nice to leave something behind for your family and friends (and the world) that lives on when you're gone!Video #3

Incidentally, there are people who've made a business out of helping seniors tell their stories before they go. The perfect marriage of entrepreneurship and useful social contribution, IMHO.And that's all, folks!
