You might not be interested in all the questions I listed but if there are things you'd like to know, now is a great time to find out if they haven't already passed away. Your parents cannot have a legacy without you. You extend their existence through knowledge of their life. Know as much as you can and pass it on to your children.
My parents were awesome, I just wish I knew the extent of their awesomeness while they were still alive because quite frankly, they would've received more respect from me. If only I had another chance.
