BookProject

Hello, thank you for your interest in the tribute book for Laura. The original idea was to give her a book with photos and funny stories from her friends and family. Now, however, the book will still be made as a memorial to our dear friend, wife, sister and daughter. I know I’ve been working on it for a while and it’s really been great to see Laura in so many peoples’ stories. You too can read it in its entirety at her upcoming memorial. More copies — with more people — will be printed later. You will be able to purchase them, and the proceeds will go to the Liz and Laura Foundation.

The idea stems from a magazine I found that Laura thought was neat. Each person will answer questions about their life and Laura’s. If you have any questions, please leave a comment below or e-mail me (lauren.r.nelson@gmail.com). Just copy and paste the following questions into an e-mail to me.

Photos are also important. To make deadline for the printing by the memorial service, please e-mail me your photos. However, if you would like me to take a photo of you to run in the final printed version, we can arrange that for a later day.

Deadline for e-mailed photos and surveys is this Saturday, Oct. 30.

Thank you for your participation.

If you’re struggling to come up with ideas for answers to your questions, here a few examples. Remember, details and specifics are the most fun to read. You can answer with one word or in paragraphs.
