Over 80 Under 20

For our occasional series, Over 80, Under 20, we talk to people at least 60 years apart about their personal experiences and their views on the world around them. We’re curious how generation gaps - big ones - play out in real life. For this segment, you'll hear from 83-year-old Mary Alice Sanders and her grandson, 19-year-old Ellis Flowers. I spoke with them in Mary Alice’s home in rural Fresno County.


This week on Valley Edition: We hear from the widow of a police officer who took his life last year. Now, she’s telling his story to bring attention to a leading cause of death among law enforcement.

Plus: We talk to a grandmother and a grandson - she’s 83, he’s 19 - about their takes on life, love and aging. They're part of our new occasional series, Over 80, Under 20.
