Dad's been gone since '82; mom, since '98. The longer they're gone, the more I regret not being able to hear their answers to the questions that have piled up in my mind since their deaths. I'd love to hear more about living through the Great Depression and World War II, among other things.
BTW Smudge Pot, the escalate in "escalator" refers to the speed at which you move along the stairs, not the direction.
