During one of my most difficult times, Stephanie Gates provided her writing service for what I thought would be
a traditional account of my husband’s life. Instead, Stephanie used her creative writing skills to transform this painful
process into a beautiful story that was cherished by family and friends. She wrote my husband’s obituary as a story from
his perspective. All the information and events were narrated using his candid personality. This different twist to his
obituary actually brought humor and fond memories to all that knew him. I’m so thankful that Stephanie wrote my
husband’s obituary, I like to read it to treasure the pleasant recollections of his life.  – Tracy Wesson
