Richard is a writer, father, son, and grandson.
LifeStory grew out of his experience interviewing his grandfather and
turning that into an autobiographical book while maintaining his
grandfather's unique voice. Richard was thrilled to learn about his
grandfather's early days growing up in 1920s New York City, and
about his experiences flying for the United States Air Force in the
Pacific during World War II.
As Richard told his family and friends about the enormous wonder
and satisfaction that came from the project--which culminated with
the book printing on the day of his grandfather's passing at the age of
92--he found there was an overall theme to people's responses:
I wish I had recorded my (fill in the blank)'s story before s/he had passed. Now it's too late.
Richard is proud to be a champion for the recording of heritage and the building of legacy, because knowing the history of where and whom you come from provides immeasurable value for current and future generations. Equally, it provides value to the one who is telling the story.
If you are interested in a professional, elegant, soft or hardcover book that is skillfully written in your loved one's own words--that presents the story, firsthand, of his or her most important life memories, milestones, and achievements--then reach out to Richard.
