"Put it to them briefly, so they will read it; clearly, so they will appreciate it; picturesquely, so they will rember it; and above all, accurately, so they will be guided by its light"

Legacy Letters Services

Letter writing is a lost art form, but it doesn't have to be. Ms. Dobkin is helping to revive this old art form while strengthening ties between the generations. She helps clients write Legacy Letters, highly focused letters from the heart that share a person's values, life lessons and the influences that shaped both. The letter reviews the impact a person has had on his/her family and friends, business and community. Stories are shared. Insights are revealed and valuable advice is offered based on a lifetime of experiences and learning. Legacy Letters are tailored written, and vary in length and design.

Who Wants A Legacy Letter?

CEO's, community leaders, politicians, retired people or other exceptionally busy people, or people who just don't enjoy or feel completely comfortable with writing.

How are Legacy Letters Created?

Legacy Letters are based on informal recorded interviews, either in person, over the phone, Skype, or a combination of all three. Leah Dobkin carefully listens, records and writes what you want to say. All you have to do is talk and review what she writes. It is a collaborative process, but you have the final say as to what goes into the letter. The result is a unique letter or book that pulls together, clearly and interestingly, everything you wanted to share with your children and grandchildren, but never did.

This is the time not to procrastinate, and get your wisdom down on paper. You have a lot to offer. Give a gift to your family that can be passed on from generation to generation. A Legacy Letter will be cherished more than any gift you have ever given.
