    This book is great and very uncommon. He has always talked about writing a book about his life, but doesn't know where to start. So when I saw it I knew this would be perfect, and he loves it.

    I bought this book for may father who is retired. He has said he struggles to fill his days and I told him he should be documenting stories and memories for his family to enjoy. I gave him this book to get him started on the journey of putting his life stories into writing and now a keepsake for all of us.

                I think she will enjoy recording her memories or life details in the coming months. I also told her I'd record the details if she'd share orally. I think we both will enjoy this gift in the days to come. Nice idea!

                    My mother recently passed away and had a book similar to this. It was a great comfort to me and helped me plan her service with some very personal touches. I wanted a similar book to pass on to my family.

                          My family cannot wait to start this keepsake with my grandfather. It will capture so many of his memories and is a great conversation starter at our family gatherings. We know so much about him but this gives us the chance to learn more of the details and here it told by him.

                            Mom writes a bit each night! This type of journaling helps her recall happy times and fond memories help lift her spirits as she cares for my father who is suffering with Alzheimer's disease. I know Mom is creating a book that will be treasured in years ahead by her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren!
