We just received the books--they are amazing! My mom called me crying as she had just read the dedication. I couldn't have asked for anyone better to walk her through this.

Interviews were both professional and comfortable—Nora's patience was outstanding. Her writing style was informal, clever and filled with stories expressing the genuine sentiments of our family. The end result was a beautiful family history written through a humorous prism. We will treasure this book and hope our grandchildren, great-grandchildren & more get to read it to get a glimpse of where they came from.

What a delight to learn new details about my mother's life that could have remained untold. Our whole family had a ball gathering photos and remembering stories that hadn’t been shared in a very long time. The memoir will grow in significance for years to come, I’m positive.

Memoir for Me created the perfect tribute to my father. Now his stories will live on forever in this book!

The book you created for our father is a treasure that will be passed down through the generations. Pete's stories will come to life for our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren because of your gift for telling them. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

The business interview was very motivating actually because talking through my business story helped me to realize that I have achieved a lot and that there is this recurring theme in my career path. I always wondered myself what makes me different? What’s my unique selling point? This experience helped me to answer that.

Memoir for Me was great in working with my parents step-by-step. They aren’t necessarily used to technology but Nora was able to accommodate everything and guide them through the process. The result is a memoir that will be a keepsake in our family forever. I am so happy that we were introduced to Nora and her company.

They went above and beyond to capture my parents' life stories. Nora was patient, but kindly persistent, which is absolutely required to get a project like this done! It is worth every penny and minute we spent--I highly recommend.

I received my book before Christmas as a birthday gift. It is wonderful. I read it by the fireplace that night, sipping a good scotch. It was slow going as each page and picture took me back! Thank you so much for your fine work, which becomes more apparent each time I pick it up. The dedications were indeed a surprise and brought tears to my eyes. Finally, the cover was so nicely done. Guess I can’t say enough about the results.

Mom just passed away on Wednesday night and I’m so happy I have a book of her stories.  I’m now thinking of all my friends and relatives that have parents still living and sharing your information with them.  I wish I would have had a book done about my Dad! Thank you Nora for the beautiful keepsake.

You know what my mama's so happy about in this picture? Opening up the book she collaborated on with Memoir for Me. We may remember the stories or the milestones, but now we have documentation of the details. How many times my dad asked her to marry him before she said yes. What she did to overcome her feeling of isolation as a SAHM of three in the 70s. What a badass she was going back to law school at night when we were so small. And where she's traveled all over the world—with my dad, with friends, with us. Highly recommend!

My mother and aunt loved the books! Thank you for creating a treasure for our family. I'm so glad we did this.

My parents were initially intrigued and apprehensive about having this done for them. They didn’t think they had much of a story to tell. Turns out, they had quite a bit to share! Thank you, Nora, for such an inspiring and lovely way to capture their stories. The process couldn’t have been easier.

Love it!!! This is exactly what I had in my head. Thank you for making it reality. It is so hard to put all of your thoughts, memories and feelings together. I mean how do you convey 40 years of love and support into a book? This is exactly what I had hoped for.
