(Here's a good example of what can be achieved. John wanted something special for Julie for her 50th birthday. John has kindly given his permission for his poem and story to be published)
Who do you want the poem written for?: Julie Ackerson
Why do you want the
poem written ?: 50th birthday of significant other
Key Messages: Still a beautiful person who is fun to be with and a joy to be around
Memorable Moments: One of our first dates was a camping trip that was only going to take a few hours to get to. Six hours later, we arrive at the campground only to learn it was full. The ranger told us of another camp not far away. Two hours later, Julie kept telling me "just 2 more miles, just 2 more miles"
My nicknames for her are HB for Honey Bunny, House Mouse and Willie II.
Other Comments: Julie is a free spirit and a hippie at heart who loves 70's rock.
Her birthday is this Sunday and we are having a party for her on Saturday, so what is the chance this can get done by then? I know it is late in the game, but I hadn't really come across anything I wanted to get for her until I saw your site. Feel free to call my cell. We live in Georgia, but I am in New York, so she doesn't have to know. Thanks so much!
Style: happily nostalgic if possible, but happy
Package Type: Deluxe
Last thoughts: I know it is last minute, but help me if you can see it in your heart! Thanks again!
John kindly replied:
"It is awesome! And thanks for the effort of doing it on such short notice. As for the paper, I like both the celestial or the sunset. I think the celestial would look better in a frame, but I will leave that in your capable hands. Thanks for everything. I think she will be very happy with your work. John"
And after the party...
"I received the poem and it just re-kindled all the good thoughts that reading it originally created.
I tried to put this comment into your guestbook, but it wouldn't accept that many letters. Didn't know if you wanted to use, but I can't thank you enough.
Allen made this poem for my significant other's 50th birthday. He did it with very short notice. As luck would have it, I couldn't have the poem for her party. I decided I would read it at the appropriate time.
As luck would have it, someone wrote one for Julie as well. But at toasting time, I read the poem that Allen so elegantly created.
There not only was a standing ovation, but hardly a dry eye in the house, because they knew it caught her essence.
Needless to say, the poem was a hit and when we finally received the poem, she was even more impressed.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!"
