Testimonials

I have met and worked with many aviation historians and enthusiasts over the past 10 years. It is rare indeed to find one who cares about the human side of these stories. You and I, madam, are what I call emotional historians.

Your talk was not just good, it was excellent. You were so confident and well spoken in your delivery that you held everyone’s attention all the way through your talk. You did so much research that you knew the content thoroughly. The depth of your research showed how much passion you had for the story. One could tell that you left no stone unturned and you dug right in to bring it to life.

You seem to me to be a born researcher, story teller, and journalist. May God continue to bless you with success for your current and future projects.

Anne, Your work is noble and incredibly respectful of our ancestors remembrance. These are family members we never knew but through your stories we are reminded of who they were. Thanks for enshrining in print such a historical memorial to those most of us never met but loved because they were our family!! Well done!

Anne

I just finished your book on Gordon Jones's life as an instructor under the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan and frankly, I could not put it down. I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the book. Your research was fantastic, never have I seen so much original material from the Library and Archives of Canada. I liked the way you integrated historical material and material from your interviews with the Jones's. I look forward to reading your other projects.

Thank you so much Anne for sending the Kingsville Archives a copy of your beautiful book, She Made Them Family. I was so impressed. It is an interesting and very well designed book. You have done an excellent job! It is an inspiration on how to put together an attractive and appealing scrapbook history. I must admit that I have never seen this format done so well before.

Anne, your ability to capture my father's WWII military experience in your recent book, She Made Them Family, was invaluable to our family. We were previously unaware of many of the details of this history that you gleaned from him. Your account was comprehensive and well written. As memories fade, we are grateful that this book will be enjoyed by generations of our family for years to come. Your enthusiasm for this project was evident throughout the process. It was a pleasure for my father and our family to work with you!

I think that we are all amazed at the attention Wings Over High River has generated. My brother in Vancouver wants a copy. I believe the success is due to a number of things. One; Gordon the man himself. He is truly a unique individual. Two; All of the lives that he has touched. Three; Who the heck at 89 is still flying? It is just not any airplane, it's a Tiger Moth. Four; Your wonderful gift of bringing the lovable 'down home' Gordon to share his story in a way that every reader feels that they know him. Five; Your heart Anne. It was a labour of love, and you took us all there.

She approaches every assignment or function with enthusiasm and professionalism.

Dear Anne,

I wanted to thank you for forwarding me the magazine with my dad's article. You certainly captured him and I can tell you -- you made his day. Loved the photos, you have a great smile and certainly a talent for writing. Thank you so much.

I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Anne Gafiuk for more than three years now and had sent her on a variety of freelance writing assignments for Calgary New Home Living, Calgary Condo Living and Resorts magazines that I have been editing. She is extremely reliable in submitting articles well before deadline, which are not only well-written in her distinctive and punchy prose, but offers fresh insight to the usually dry real estate articles I assign to her. I am glad to be able to count on her for time-sensitive material knowing that I will be getting a well-written, reader-friendly article fit for our magazines.
