 It was a ten
Thank you very much for your presentation "We All Have a Story to Tell." On my scale of one to ten, it was a ten!

My sons were thrilled
I just wanted to let you know that my family really appreciated what I gave them for Christmas this past year. The life story that you did for me was received beautifully. My sons were thrilled to get it.  Your quips and throughts were really good and you wrote it as if you had known me all my life.  I do thank you a whole bunch for doing such a great job.

The power of stories
Thank you for leading such a creative writing class for us.  Having a diverse audience was one of our goals for this event and you managed to tie us all together through the power of stories!  Your personal creativity through your stories and music provided the group with insight and illumination. I’m so glad we could work together!

and a quote from Gloria Swanson
 
I'll be eighty this month. 
Age, if nothing else, entitles me
to set the record straight.
I've given my memoirs
far more thought
than any of my marriages. 
You can't divorce a book.
He loved you so
Karen Larsen with Fred Groh, who was not only one of her first memoir students, but also became her very dear friend.
 
Thank you for all you meant to Fred. He loved you so.

Well organized and easy going
Thank you so much for your program “Life Story Writing.”  You were well organized and had an easy going manner that allowed participants to open and up and share some of their life stories.  I had nothing but compliments from those who attended your workshop.

Helps people dip into memories
I remember my engineer dad and me making a Jacob’s ladder, some electrical current project…I was bored to tears as he tried to explain every painstaking detail. Way too much precision, but the end product was really interesting to watch, and it made a cool soundkind of like the electrical noise you’d hear in Dr. Frankenstein's lab. You have a great way of helping people dip into their memories.
