A Double 80th Birthday Party at the GCT StoryBooth

Patricia (Pat) Gillespie and her husband Harry (Bud) are both celebrating their 80th birthdays. As a present to them, their daughter made an appointment for them to tell their story in the Grand Central Terminal StoryBooth. All five of their children came to New York City from around the country to celebrate with them, and 18 members of their family watched outside of the both while their granddaughter, Anne Burmeister, represented for the family as the designated interviewer. Eighteen members of a family at once is a new record for StoryCorps. Thank you, Gillespie family, for choosing to spend your milestone birthday with us!
