“One thing that spurred me on to do a Legacy Book was the great sadness and gap that the family felt in not having a Legacy Book from my husband George. He had had such an interesting life but never made time to write down his stories. This was maybe one thing that pushed me to ‘get the job done’ – and to respond quickly to your ideas and the next steps.
The rewarding part of the journey was the way we were able to work as such a good team, using our various talents and experiences, filling in the various steps between us, and being on the same wavelength for most of it. I can’t thank you enough!”

– Jane Vincent-Havelka
