Quotes Dear Mary, Thanks so much for the wonderful memory books! We delivered them to Mel and Celia and they had their noses buried immediately. What terrific keepsakes! Thanks again for all your hard work and patience. Quotes

Quotes My parents loved the book you wrote about them, as did so many relatives. I wanted to write you sooner, but am just now getting to it. My father passed away two months ago, but Mom is doing fine. There's not a day that goes by that we aren't grateful for having gotten both of their stories documented while Dad was still living. Again, thank you! Quotes

Quotes Dear Mary, I am delighted with the family story you helped me develop to pass on to my children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. You are a skilled interviewer and your relaxed, comfortable demeanor is an essential element to make people feel at ease while documenting their life's highs and lows. This easy questioning in no way detracts from the professional process. I'm so happy to have taken care of this important phase of my life so that those after me will be amused, amazed and proud of Grandma/Great Grandma! I recommend others to do their life stories while they can still recall events of past times; the important times when children and grandchildren were growing up to make our lives more purposeful. Don't put it off. Do it while you're able. You won't regret it. Quotes

Quotes Mary was very organized and I liked her from the start. Her questions were well phrased and I felt at ease talking with her. Our conversations were recorded and all the special events of my life were accurately documented and well written. Reflections of My Past turned out to be a great hit with my family, and they now have their own copy to enjoy. My wife (deceased) and I had six children and, thanks to Mary Coons, they now have a permanent and accurate record of our past. Quotes

Quotes I have worked with Mary Coons for about two years. She has edited a monthly article and one book during that time. Mary is exceptionally proficient, timely beyond requirement, and very cost effective. I have paid more than twice the price for half the service. Mary makes me look like the expert in my field that I want to be. Quotes
