Oh wow! That's beautiful and will be perfect! Thank you so much! I have decided to also make some canvas pictures to give to the pastor of the church and his professor at Concordia from this very picture thanking them in my own words. Thanks again… the pictures and DVD are priceless to many. I hope you realize your work goes beyond the technology but true emotions for people that they would not have without your help to bring it to life. Thank you many times over! T.H.
Thanks for putting our memories on a DVD. S.W.
Phil, thanks again for fitting in my project last week. My wife really appreciated it and we took the time to watch sections of the video that we had not seen in a very long time. I will point others in your direction as the subject comes up. E.R.
* Thank you so much for doing DVD’s for us & our children and getting it done for Christmas! By the time we found out about you, it was getting right down to the wire. We are so pleased that you could take both the pictures and video clips off of my camera and now we all can enjoy the wonderful memories we made from our family Hawaii trip together! I know we will be using your services again! Thanks a lot! L.L.
Phil, you DID work magic on converting that old VHS tape to a DVD! I can't believe the improved clarity and the lack of "jumping" that made viewing of the VHS tape so difficult. I'm so grateful that you have restored a precious memory for viewing!
Thank you! D.P.

Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did on the video. It is hard to explain how much it meant to all of us who loved and admired her. Her 4-year-old great-grandson began to clap after the DVD ended at her funeral and everyone else applauded with him! She surely looked down from heaven and smiled and would want to tell you how amazing it was and how talented you are. Thank you. J.W.
Thank you for the wonderful job of combining the photos and music we selected for my Father’s video tribute. It was a great collection of memories through which everyone was able to reflect and celebrate his life at the memorial service last Saturday. You are an artist – I really appreciated how you cleaned up the photos, chose where the Ken Burns effect would start and end (with great dramatic effect in some of the shots!) and how the music was incorporated in all the sections of the tribute. Thank you for doing all of this so expertly and calmly under such time pressure. V.G.
It is well done; thanks for your work. L.S.
You did a fantastic job on the video. J.E.

We so appreciate your helping us at a time when we couldn’t even think straight. Your work is very well done and I gave many people your name as they complimented the video. J.L.
