You are absolutely amazing! Thank you so much for all of the time and love you put into this project with my mom! She means the world to us and this will preserve her story forever! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I loved that little soundbite that you sent. It made me get choked up. I am so blessed to have her as my mom. And I will always be thankful to you for this amazing opportunity with her!!! I can’t thank you enough for everything you have done for our family! – Patty S.

Michele Trent is an artist and her work is truly moving. Stories bind families together and Michele facilitates the process like no one I have ever seen.

When we first wanted to have a recording it was just to hear her voice again, yet it has been so wonderful to be able to listen again and again to what mattered most to her and how God worked in and through her life. We made her story available online and let people at her funeral know about it. We continue to hear people sharing how her life has touched them and I know it will continue throughout our lives. So thank you so much for what you do and creating such an excellent recording for us to enjoy and share the rest of our lives. – Angela B.
Not long ago I was asked by a friend: "when someone talks to you about your 'personal legacy', what do you think of?" In other words, what do I want to pass along to my family generations younger than I? My answer: memories and experiences important in my life. How will my children, grandchildren and now great grandchildren know about my "history" unless I capture it in a way that can be easily passed along to my entire family.
In case you have had similar feelings, let me pass along the name Michele Trent and her company "Remembered Well." She came to our home several times, with her recording device and lots of thought-provoking questions that generated a conversation regarding my history .... back to the earliest memories as a young child. Michele recorded well over an hour's worth of my speech which she later edited into a format that my family can easily follow. She did the same thing for my wife, Joyce, separately. Michele unlocked memories that we had not thought about in many, many years ... now captured for posterity. I believe our family members will be very grateful to receive, individually, little computer thumb drives that will, in our own voices, tell our life story.

I just wanted to send along a brief note of gratitude for your work on this. We listened to the whole thing tonight as a family. We loved it. I think it both captures her personality and her biography in a way that those who know her well and those who are only passing acquaintances will appreciate. So, thanks for your work on it.
Best, Matt A.
Thank you so much. My kid's said it (my recorded stories) was the best gift they've ever gotten from me.
I Highly recommend "Remembered Well". Growing up I thought I heard every life story possible regarding my parent's life in Italy and their migration to the USA. Little did I realize how much those stories meant to me and the additional detail to the stories I would experience during the recording session of my dad's life story. Knowing the stories is one thing, bringing them to life and watching my dad during his recordings was not only amazing but will be imprinted in my mind forever. My only regret is I should have done this years early while my mom was around to add her life story. Needless to say, I am grateful I was able to experience this journey down memory lane with my dad. Being able to provide these life story recording to my siblings and their families is priceless. "Remembered Well" is more than just recording a life story, its Wisdom being transferred as a Gift. Thanks again for the journey.

What a marvelous opportunity for us to leave a narrative for posterity. Sadly, our parents took everything into eternity, leaving a great deal unknown. Ron & Judy L.
