“I love it!
I’m so grateful for the loving curiosity, commitment, perseverance and patience that you gave to our family in order to bring my grandfather’s story back to life. You didn’t give up and were determined to keep on keeping on. What’s especially nice is that you captured the character and values of my grandfather (and grandmother) in the kind and modest manner that they would have approved; you told it from the heart.
We descendants of Charles Arthur and Helen Stuart Tuxbury Bliss are forever grateful. We are content in knowing that future generations will have access to their story with the click of a button; or better yet, with a visit to beautiful Newburyport.
Thank you for your dedication and superb account.”
