It’s hard to buy a Father’s Day present for the man who has everything, so LifeBook USA are offering a gift with a difference. The company specializes in helping people to record their life’s journey – a tangible embodiment of personal triumphs and hardships.
For Bob Fitzsimmons and his sister, LifeBook was exactly the unique gift they were looking for for their 70-year-old father, Tom, based in Florida.
“It just seemed like a perfect fit. We thought it was appropriate to try something not only out of the box, but also something meaningful,” Mr Fitzsimmons said.
“My father was certainly intrigued by it. Even actually, at the beginning, he was almost a little confused. He didn’t even know that such a gift existed or that there was such a thing out there. So, for him, after explaining exactly what my sister and I had given him, he was thrilled. He thought that it was such a unique idea that he really embraced the idea from the beginning,” he said.
“It was really more about the experience that we were seeking to give, as opposed to a finished tangible product. That was less important to us. It was more about my father getting something out of this that he found to be fulfilling and enjoyable, which is what we accomplished and were pleased with,” he said.
Vice President Author Development at LifeBook USA, Duane Roemmich, said the LifeBook method involves four to six months of face-to-face-interviews, held weekly with a trained interviewer.
“The LifeBook process helps people to tell their stories. Information gathered is then documented in their very own personal autobiography. It becomes a treasured archive that can live on for generations,” Mr Roemmich said.
For Bob Fitzsimmons, it’s this legacy that has been an unexpected, but very positive, outcome of his father’s LifeBook experience.
“I think this is one of those gifts that will give back many years from now to a lot of people, especially my children and my sister’s children who probably can’t appreciate it fully at this stage of their life,” Mr Fitzsimmons said.
