MORRIS, Minnesota- A 94-year-old man mourning the death of his wife chose to do something wonderful: fill his backyard with the sound of children's laughter.

"You just can't imagine what it's like".

Davison's wife, Evelyn "Evy" Davison, died of cancer in April 2016 at 90 years old, just four days before their 66th wedding anniversary.

In the spring, the retired judge had an in-ground pool built at his home in Morris.

"I'm not sitting by myself looking at the walls", Davison says.

Keith Davison, 94, of Minnesota, then opened the doors, so to speak, to the kids who live near him. In July, the pool, which is 32 feet long and 9 feet deep, opened - and children from all over the neighborhood came to swim.

'I knew they'd come, ' he said, laughing.

Davison has three adult children, but no grandchildren. 'What else would you think of doing where you could have a whole bunch of kids over every afternoon?' Davison said he still enjoys swimming when all the kids have gone home.
