In the following paragraph (that I translated it from Russian)
She said she wasn't happy with him. She told me 'Sometimes I try to find one good memory for him ,only one...I can't find any'
I am not sure about what's inside the quotations.
Is it OK to use the word memory...ie one memory?
Is 'for' the right preposition?
I feel I made a mistake but I don't know where it is.!
Thank you very much in advance!

Using the word "memory" is acceptable. I would also use "of" rather than "for". With "for" it might be mistaken to mean she is trying to give him a good memory, rather than trying to remember one of him.
