Jim Finegold - Lafayette, CA

“If it wasn’t for April Bell, I would not have relived my life. Some of the most enjoyment I’ve had since my wife passed away was reliving everything [during the interviews] and reflecting on my life, through where I used to live, the newspaper articles about me from when I was young, and calling friends to remind them of those times… All of them are as enthusiastic about it as I am!

Elizabeth Daskarolis - Oakland, CA

“Tree of Life Legacies, offers an invaluable service for ALL people ー We all have lives filled with great stories, and by recording them we come closer to ourselves, to where we have been, where we are, and where we are going ー April’s skills of compassion, empathy, and a wide-open heart and ear beautifully facilitate this gift of self-discovery ー What could be better than that?”

Kevin Bernet - Los Angeles, CA

“Loved working with April. Preparing for a story of a 90-year legacy was time consuming and not without difficulties, however April was so helpful, encouraging and patient during the process. April’s quality of work and ability to adapt to revisions and changes was outstanding.

I lost my own parents before meeting Ms. Bell. If you’re fortunate to still have yours, don’t miss the opportunity to have them interviewed, and their stories memorialized for you and your children, and their children, to enjoy. Reach out now to Ms. Bell to start the journey.

[In the project we worked on together,] April was impeccable in every aspect of the production, and the result is nothing short of fantastic. She has my highest admiration.

Jay P. Renneisen, Esq. - Walnut Creek, CA

“I hired April Bell to do a personal history video of my mother and her two sisters. Wow! They all loved April and how she captured so much of their family and individual stories! I would recommend April to anyone who wants to document on video some of their most precious family history and loved ones.”

Cliff Dochterman - Moraga, CA

“This is just a note to let you know how well received the video which you crafted has been. From our video-taped discussions, you captured so many stories and memories which I am now able to pass on to my family and friends. Many of the stories had never been recorded. Now I am certain that others will find them of interest in the years to come. At my age, I think I have passed the “autumn years” and approaching mid-winter, so I suspect that my grandchildren, and perhaps even their children, will someday find it interesting and will appreciate that “Grand-dad” took the time to tell a few stories about the unique experiences he had way back in the 20th century. Thank you for the unique experience of recording some of the highlights of my 84 years. You did a super job!”

Rich Fettke - Walnut Creek, CA

“I watched the Real Wealth Network company video with three close friends Saturday night and they were blown away! They said it totally captures us and our values. They raved about the story line that runs through the video and how the final 15 seconds about connection is “absolutely what Kathy and I have always been about.” Our friends loved it so much their eyes were full of tears by the end! It was such a cool moment to share it with them and to see their reaction to it. So THANK YOU!!!” ~Rich Fettke | COO Real Wealth Network

“Through exploring our own sacred stories, we shape the foundations which hold up our future generations.”
