Lynette-Smith-Heartfelt-Letters-Expert

Whenever Lynette is asked why she was moved to establish Good Ways to Write, she tells this story:

 
When our son Byron married Rachael in 2008, they created lasting memories that touched our hearts: They each wrote a loving letter to their own parents, describing not only their fondest childhood memories but also the values, life lessons, and ideals they would bring to their marriage. At the wedding rehearsal, one at a time, they presented their letters to their parents. Both sets of parents, as well as all others present, were deeply moved. We will always treasure our loving memento.
 

Byron's_Letter,_Facing_L-72dpi-144pxW-caInspired by Byron and Rachael’s original idea, Lynette has created this website and its tools and products to help you write your own treasured personal letters and business communications, in furtherance of her life’s purpose:
  

  

The Big, Achievable Goal

To get millions of people worldwide to write heartfelt letters of appreciation so they can establish, enhance, and even rebuild their relationships and thus change their world.

Marine
Corps Daze
by William Barrons is a hilarious account of a young man who
enlisted in the USMC on the day after his 17th Birthday of 1943
because his birthday was on a Sunday. He
faced the hardships and glory of the War in the Pacific armed only with a
manual typewriter and an incredible eye for details. His memoire of World War Two and the days
after will jog your memory of locations such as San Diego, Pearl Harbor, the
Marshall Islands and Chicago.

In October of 2015 at the age of 89, Bill Barrons deployed with 80
veterans one last time to Washington, DC with Honor Flight, a national
organization that flies World War II and Korean veterans back to our nation’s
capital to visit the memorials that they fought so hard for. In honor of that experience Bill and his
publisher, iCrewDigitalPublishing.com are donating all of the proceeds of Marine Corps Daze to the San Diego and
Columbus Honor Flight Organizations. In
addition, ICrewDigitalPublishing.com will provide copies of Bill’s book to any
Veteran’s organization for the cost of printing and shipping for the purpose of
fund-raising.

Born 1926, in Cadillac, Michigan, the oldest boy of fourteen
kids. Survived the Great Depression and
joined the Marines the day after I turned 17.
Could hardly wait to go fight those nasty Nazis and Japanese. Served 2½ war years in the Marines. Got married, went to college, had kids, re-joined
the Marines in 1949, in time for the Korean War. I became a Marine Second Lieutenant but was a
Platoon Commander only for a short while as my sick wife nearly died and I had
to resign to care for my family. Became
a Telephone equipment engineer with AT&T in Chicago. Then was a kitchen and home remodeling
designer for 22 years. Retired at age 69
and began to research and write novels.
At age 90, I’m still at it!
