UFS Then & Now

Eileen DoyonIt has been quite a journey publishing Dedications-Dads & Daughters, and Keepsakes, Treasures From the Heart in April 2013.  Most people will deal with loss at some point in their lifetime.  The loss of my mom and my brother early in my life has been extremely difficult. In 2011, I lost my dad to lung cancer and was with him til the end.  Since then I had been trying to figure out how to deal with death due to it being so much a part of my life.  The year that followed my dad’s death was depressing, complicated, and dark.  Receiving two treasures, my dad’s dog tags, and my grandmother’s chandelier, meant so much to me, my attitude, and my outlook on my own life.  With these keepsakes, I felt their presence and their love all around me.  I knew that others in my situation had to feel the same way.  If so, I wanted to help.  So that became my mission….to help others talk about their loved ones who have passed and to tell their stories of their own personal keepsakes.  Our military is very precious to me.  We owe so much to our veterans that have served and protected our country.   So that became my theme of my second book, Dedications: Dads & Daughters, daughters telling stories of their dads’ service to our country.

People were so excited, emotional, happy, and sad all in one, but it was all good.  We laughed and cried talking about memories and stories of loved ones.  Sometimes, those feelings are buried deep down due to the crazy hectic lives we all live, and sometimes it just hurts too much to think or talk about.  Everyone’s comments were so supportive and positive.  It really became a healing to all and made people feel good.

So, in this hectic life, I decided to create a series of books titled “Unforgettable Faces and Stories”.  We all need to stop and think about people in our lives, both past and present, and stories of those unforgettable magic moments.  Those moments consists of happy memories whether with our pets, traveling the roads, or particular topics of life…….our theme is…YOUR story told by YOU!  We provide a creative outlet to enable people to tell their own story, share their own pictures of special moments in their lives, and hopefully to use this storytelling as a healing process as it was for me.  The third book in the Unforgettable Faces & Stories series, Best Friends: Forever and Ever published in November 2013 is comprised of heartwarming stories of friendship that everyone can relate to. Our books also present a way to give back to the community with a percentage of profit of each book going to a specific charity related to that book’s theme.

The fourth book in our series, Pet Tales: Unconditional Love is now available for purchase. No matter what type of animal, pets provide many of us with companionship, unconditional love, security, healing and in some cases they are trained to assist us to enable our lives to be more functional. This book is filled with stories of these very special relationships. Look for Pet Tales: Unconditional Love on amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com.Eileen-Signing1

But we have only just begun our journey. There are many more Unforgettable Faces & Stories to share and books planned for the future to do just that. Our next project is Letters to Heaven. If you could write a letter to that one special person in your life that left this world too soon, what would it be, what would you tell them? If you would like to find out more about this project and others on the horizon, please visit our coming soon page. As always we’d love to have you share your story told by you! We thank you for your continued support and for your Unforgettable Faces & Stories!
