Safe is the story of my relationship with my grandfather, Victor Sikevitz.
I grew up listening to his tales, and then had the privilege of telling his own stories back to him as he lost him memory. I try to explore the dying process with comedy, vulnerability and compassion.
This is a story about legacy, and the fingerprints we leave behind on the lives of our loved ones.
I hope you find it meaningful, and that it inspires you to share stories and memories with your loved ones.
