Individual Testimonials:

Helen is about joy and gladness.  It would take many pages to attest to all the laughs we had from the enjoyable experiences that were buried deep in my memory.  Telling these stories had  me feeling so much better than before  our visit.                                    Maryann J.

I came to this country in 1974 and that's when I first saw Coney Island. I never went on the rides or knew any of the history.  Now I feel like I know more about Coney Island than some of the people that went there often.  It feels really good to learn something new.                    Doug

Thank you for doing this program with us. It's something different. It's good to learn new things so our brains don't turn to mush.                                                                                      Mary

Every night before I go to sleep, I glance at my circle collage to ensure I am thinking happy thoughts as I head off to sleep.  Reflecting on all those positive memories, I feel like I've been to heaven.  It's the first think I look at in the morning, too, and it starts my day off right.  Helen is so caring.  She took the time and energy to find all the right photos to make me the happiest I could be.                                                                                                                Whitey B.

I've learned about things that I never even knew      existed.  And I'm 88 years old!             Stephen

This was a gift from a neighbor so I must admit, I wasn't quite sure what to expect from "Circle of Memories".  Some things  I couldn't remember but that which I could, made me smile.  The coach was helpful in retrieving my life's special times and I left feeling better than when I came in.  Thank you, Helen, for sharing my memories.                                       Barbara S.
