FAMILY HISTORIES AND MEMOIRS
Laurie uses her writing talent to assist families in organizing their memories into family memoir books. She interviews family members, sorts through family photos and follows the timelines of family histories to a finished product that can be proudly passed down throughout the generations.
"I explained to Laurie that I was looking for a vehicle to let our children and grandchildren know what life was like for our ancestors...We knew time was fleeting. We needed the memories of...our family members and friends. Laurie got down to business quickly conducting a series of interviews. It is easy to feel comfortable with her. She has been a joy with whom to work. Her caring and dedication shine brightly in this book."
Roger Morrison, "Bounty of the Great Plains a Beyond: A Multigenerational Legacy of Rebecca A. and Milton L. Morrison"
