Bill Buessink inspects the sawed off section of an oak log in the log cabin that he is rebuilding south of Jackson on Nov. 12, that Buessink's grandfather originally built in 1902. Bill Beussink is currently fighting Alzheimer's, but he's holding on tight to what he knows and loves. The 84-year-old former bricklayer is helping his son-in-law, Earl Bennett, complete the restoration of a cabin built from 100-year-old oak logs.
